LAWRENCE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - The USDA wants to keep the owner of the 35-year-old elephant Nosey from traveling with the animal in the future.

They are accusing Nosey's owner, Hugo Liebel, of providing false information to government officials and missing a deadline to respond to a complaint from May.

They want Liebel's Animal Welfare Act License to be taken away.

Liebel says he hasn’t seen a copy of the May complaint and that he hasn’t missed a deadline.
