Dear Friends of Tony the Tiger,
We are still waiting and waiting to find out if Michael Sandlin was approved or denied for the state license that is required to keep Tony.
Please write Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Maria Davidson firstname.lastname@example.org and her supervisor Fred Kimmel email@example.com ask them NOT to give Michael Sandlin a state license because an endangered Tiger needs and deserves to be cared for humanely. For twenty one year’s Tiger Truck Stop has caged Tigers in deplorable conditions there has got to be an end to this. Ask them to please think about what is best for Tony when making this decision. We all know “Big Cats” like Tigers do NOT belong in cages at truck stops.
Please read and sign a NEW petition that James Platt and Rose Ware have created for Tony. They are working diligently on helping get Tony released from the truck stop and now need your support. Please post the petition where ever you can to spread the word. We want the world to know how Tony is being made to suffer every minute of every day.
Thank you all for caring about Tony, if he only knew how hard we are fighting for his freedom so that he can spend the rest of his life in peace and can just be who he is (without being harassed) a TIGER.
P.S. Please find a couple of pictures attached from today (9-25-09). Tony is locked in his den AGAIN with no access to water…..
For the cats,
