Victory for Tony the Truck Stop Tiger!

November 7, 2011

Many of you will already have heard this very good news.  I was thrilled to receive this message last week.

I am still unsure when Tony will be released into the custody of the ALDF or an accredited animal sanctuary.  Many thanks for your support. ACE


Hi Ace

How are you? I want to thank you for supporting Tony. I don’t know if you already heard the news, but The Animal Legal Defense Fund was victorious in their hearings for Tony on Wednesday Nov. 2

The judge ordered The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to revoke the current permit and prohibited it from issuing any new permits to the Truck Stop.

Please see the update from ALDF here:

Thank you again for caring about Tony and bringing his story to more people through your blog.

    I was so overwhelmed by the news this morning that I cried. No more horrendous fumes, awkward gawkers or loud diesel engines driving by Tony at all hours of the night. This poor animal has deserved a real home for so long, I’m thrilled the judge in the case denied Sandlin another permit for Tony. I am hoping and praying that Tony goes to Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Florida….an accredited and exceedingly reputable sanctuary for big cats to live out their lives in peace and tranquility.

    Thank you for keeping us updated Ace.

    God Bless,

    I’m really happy for “Tony” I really hope he gets the kind of life he deserves. I will keep waiting for updates. Thanks Ace for keeping us informed.

  4. Thank you so much for posting the news about Tony to your blog. People all over the world have come to learn about Tony and support his relocation to an accredited big cat sanctuary. Tony’s supporters are sincerely thankful for the tremendous dedication of the Animal Legal Defense Fund, and Baker and Donelson (who provided pro bono assistance) and their persistent efforts to help Tony receive the care and life he deserves at such a sanctuary. ALDF has stated on their Facebook page: “ALDF hopes to work with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and Mr. Sandlin to find the best possible new home for Tony, providing recommendations for reputable sanctuaries where Tony can live out his life in a peaceful, natural environment. || Yes, Mr. Sandlin can appeal. It is unknown if he will.”

    Thank God! I am so sickened by the extent of cruelty to these magnificent animals all over the world. Justice has been done. Thank you, thank you a million times and may Tony find a good home soon.
