Noted and signed yet again,have signed so many petitions since may 2011 for Tony to be relocated away from this hell that he lives in 24/7!!!!!!! I am so disappointed that he's still there,he needs to be moved to a sanctuary NOT a zoo to be able to enjoy his life before its too late,i cannot imagine his suffering with all the fumes,noise and no freedom,how does he get any sleep? The owner Mr Sandlin says he loves him well if he does he would do the right thing for this precious tiger as usual its all about money and greed!!!!!!! Makes me angry and sad.Thank you Cher.Liz Xx

The guy that has Tony is wasting tax dollars, court time, etc and he is enjoying it! Everyone should know who Tony is by now. I am so ticked off at the court system and how long this has been dragging on! Tony deserves nothing but the best after all of the suffering he has gone through. KEEP FIGHTING FOR TONY THE TIGER UNTIL HE IS FREE!!!

State’s top court is next stop for tiger case (
June 12, 2013

An attorney for a Grosse Tete truck stop and its owner said Tuesday the Louisiana Supreme Court will be the next stop in the case of Tony the truck stop tiger.

“We’re going to go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary,” Jennifer Treadway Morris, who represents Tiger Truck Stop and owner Michael Sandlin, said on the heels of an adverse state appellate court order.

A three-judge panel of the 1st Circuit Court of Appeal on Friday refused without comment to reconsider its April ruling that Tony, a 550-pound Siberian-Bengal tiger, cannot continue to be housed in an exhibit at Tiger Truck Stop off Interstate 10.

SIGNED! This has been going on for too long! A judge already has ordered this to be done, but, oopholes, fake videos and false testimonials are being provided by the owners of the gas station to paint a picture to the public that what they are doing is fine.
