Shoot, Sandlin may think the law is on his side but I am NOT giving Sandlin the benefit of the doubt!! I STILL want to see SANDLIN in TONY'S ENCLOSURE and TONY OUTSIDE ENCOURAGING Sandlin's CUSTOMER'S to THROW ROCKS and even HAND GERNADES @ SANDLIN!!! I'm NOT a violent person but when it comes to TONY I see RED and in TONY'S case, I'm like a BULL ready to SNORT, & CHARGE MY HORNS RIGHT INTO HIS GREEDY, OL' UGLY,

I don't want to offend nobody especially USA that is a country that I love but how is possible that there is any F*****G law that can permit to take wild animals in this way, somebody have to explaine me if this is normal. The freedom is one thing, stupidity is another!!!!!!

Sandlin, in a telephone interview, repeated his characterization of animal rights activists as domestic terrorists. “It’s to be expected,” he said of the latest lawsuit. “They don’t like to lose. They don’t give up.”

And I hope they never give up until Tony is free! In my opinion, Sandlin is the terrorist keeping Tony at a truck stop!

In whose perverse imagination do a college and a truck stop rank in the same category as *sanctuaries, zoos, wildlife research centers and scientific organizations* ??
