(PARAGON) - The elephant at the center of a controversy in Morgan County, Indiana earlier this year has been confiscated by animal control officers in Alabama.

Nosey the Elephant was part of the Paragon Homecoming Festival in September. The exhibit featured the elephant, which adults and children could ride.

Nosey's owner, Hugo Tomi Liebel, has a history of abuse. There are dozens of USDA violations tied to him, according to PETA.

Nosey was confiscated in Alabama by animal control officers on Wednesday, November 8 and taken to The Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee on Thursday. She will stay there until a court makes a final ruling on her status. Nosey is being kept separate from the other elephants while her medical needs are evaluated, according to the sanctuary.
