Tony the Tiger – Please sign this new petition urgently!

April 16, 2014

SIGN THE PETITION HERE to OPPOSE SB 250 and to UPHOLD Louisiana State Law PROHIBITING private ownership of tigers.

Louisiana Senator Rick Ward has introduced bill SB 250 seeking to: “exempt certain persons from the requirements of the big exotic cats rules” (specifically to allow Michael Sandlin to keep Tony at the Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete Louisiana.) The bill is scheduled for Senate floor action TODAY.

Tony has been confined for all of his nearly 14 years. We all know that many many animals are confined and imprisoned all over the world, but somehow for me, Tony the Tiger – in a cage at a truck stop – is a symbol of all that is unacceptable in human-animal relationships.

Let’s do our best to get him released and make his last years peaceful and more enjoyable.

You can read more about the issue HERE and see what further actions we can take. Keep up to date with Tony the Tiger via Facebook and Twitter.

Please spread the word urgently!

Many thanks ACE.

    I have done this again and many times before…. What is it with that part of world where they cannot understand this is morally wron …. and the park/sanctuary in the USA where 23 tiger cubs have died …. what is going on there!!!

  4. Scott Says:

    So right on! Feel sick just in imagining such an experience and the reality for Tony must be a torture far beyond. Truly is an example of how far off we´ve come… xo

  5. Pam Dechato Says:

    The people of LA have already voted to free this poor creature. What a disgrace, to try and keep him in captivity! I am not visiting Louisiana, my favorite state to vacation, until the animal is released to a sanctuary. What a shame.

  6. Thank you for your continued support of Tony and his release to a reputable big cat sanctuary.

  7. I have signed the petition, and will be sure to pass it on.
