Advocates for Lolita & Nosey Use Viral Video to Demand that USDA Enforces Animal Welfare Act


May 19, 2015

Nosey the elephant and Lolita the orca, longtime symbols of the cruelty of animals in entertainment, have also also become symbols of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) failure to enforce the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA). After years of protests, petitions and lawsuits, activists nationwide are now using a viral video to demand that the USDA liberate Lolita and Nosey on the grounds that the harsh conditions of their captivity violate the AWA.
