NOSEY: Following many complaints by IDA over the past several years regarding Nosey, the USDA has filed a Complaint against Nosey’s exhibitor Hugo Liebel alleging numerous willful violations of the Animal Welfare Act.
These include repeated noncompliance with the veterinary care, handling, housing and husbandry requirements: in all, some 25 violations over a period from early 2007 to early 2011.
These are grave violations, the possible penalties for which include fines and suspension or revocation of Liebel’s license to exhibit animals.
IDA will continue to monitor Nosey’s ongoing care.
