Pledge to never buy a ticket to an elephant show.
Nosey isn't the only elephant still performing. Anna Louise, now known as "America's Dancing Elephant," was taken from her family in Zimbabwe in the early 1980s as a baby. She was then brought to the U.S. to be trained.
After being moved from one zoo to another, the now 35-year-old elephant was purchased by Carson and Barnes and leased to the Kelly Miller Circus. Carson and Barnes and the Kelly Miller Circus are just a few of a slew of circuses determined to keep captive elephants, even after Ringling's announcement - and this is bad news for elephants like Anna Louise.
