This circus is scheduled to perform April 9 at Tsongas Center at UMASS Lowell. A USDA investigation is officially underway on Nosey's behalf. Unfortunately, her owner Tom Liebling continues to transport Nosey around the country, jammed into a tiny, foul trailer with seven ponies and a mule. She is constantly chained except when giving rides or performing unnatural tricks. Her terrible skin condition remains unimproved and her diet is inadequate in both amount and nutrition. Equally appalling is the fact that Liebelís mishandling of her presents a constant danger to Nosey and to the public. Please don't take your children to this circus and add to Nosey's misery and please don't invite this circus back to Lowell. Minneapolis will not let this circus perform in their city.

The Piccadilly Circus is a total rip-off.One
cheesy act after another.We left at intermission.
In addition to the elephants and ponies,some one
should investigate the treatment of Rocky the
kangaroo.

Yes viking. It is very cruel to use a kangaroo for entertainment. The bones in their front paws are very delicate and can be easily broken by "boxing."

Since you left at intermission, you did not see Nosey, the elephant's act. Did you see her at all. Was she being forced to give rides?
