Please join Animal Rights Foundation of Florida [http://www.animalrightsflorida.org/] and local PETA supporters at a peaceful protest where we'll be speaking up for Nosey the elephant [http://www.peta.org/b/thepetafiles/archive/tags/Nosey/default.aspx] and all the other animals who are forced to perform in circuses:
Where: Please meet in the parking lot of the Hillsborough Democrats, 4221 N. Himes Ave., Tampa (See this map: http://goo.gl/maps/jm3LP)
Contact: Animal Rights Foundation of Florida at [masked]
The Liebel Family Circus, [http://www.mediapeta.com/peta/pdf/liebel_family_circus_factsheet.pdf] which leases Nosey out to other circuses, has been using and neglecting Nosey for years. She is suffering from a painful skin condition and needs treatment, yet she is being forced to perform for UniverSoul Circus [http://www.mediapeta.com/peta/pdf/Universoul-pdf.pdf] this week.
If you are unable to attend the protest, or even if you are, please join PETA in urging Universoul CEO Cedric Walker, Tampa Sports Authority President and CEO Eric Hart, and North Florida Fairgrounds Manager Mark Harvey to immediately cancel Nosey's appearances in UniverSoul's upcoming Tampa and Tallahassee shows.
