    Exploiting animals for profit. Purchasing and containing wild species for entertainment. Greed and cruelty are allowed to run rampant in our 'societies'. Humans can be so disgusting

    This petition is still open for Tony. It's a good way to demonstrate continued support for his release to a reputable big cat sanctuary. http://www.change.org/petitions/ldwf-ensure-tony-the-tiger-is-released-to-a-reputable-sanctuary
