I KNOW THIS IS SIMILAR TO MY PREVIOUS NEWS ABOUT TONY BUT THIS IS A NEW & DIFFERENT ACTION THAN MY PREVIOUS ONES ~

I'M SURE YOU ALL AGREE THAT TONY NEEDS AS MUCH SUPPORT FROM AS MANY DIFFERENT ANGLES AS POSSIBLE ~

THE DECISION MADE BY THE GOVENOR TO EITHER VETO SB 250 OR NOT WILL AFFECT TONY FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE ~ IT WILL BE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A LIFE SENTENCE IN A CAGE OR BEING RELEASED TO A SANCTUARY WHERE HE'LL GET ACRES OF LAND TO ROAM, THE BEST CARE & THE LOVE HE DESERVES!

I am sad to see some derogatory remarks about the citizens of Louisiana and "Southern" states. I'm from Louisiana. And we are not the only state to have businesses that do things wrong. And the Southern states are not the only ones with embarrassing governors and other elected officials.

Frankly the derogatory remarks hurt me. And there is no need to hurt people going in the same direction that you are.

To Kathryn M.:
I, for one, truly apologize for lumping you into a category. It is unfair to individuals and I should know better. You cannot be responsible for everyone else in your state.
You are right, I am from Pennsylvania and I continually, apologize for our Gov. Corbett, who in humble opinion, is a disgrace to the nation.

Whenever some of us have vacationed in one of our southern states, we have found the act of fighting the Civil War, over and over again, disturbing. Perhaps, that's from where some of the criticism comes.

Noted and signed this one, as well as the two Change.org petitions.

Yes, please, you've done enough, so now--at long last--release Tony and his like to a sanctuary. Animals, particularly wild ones, should be granted freedom and protections they deserve in their natural habitat. No living being belongs to a cage, neither is any living being anyone's possession or slave or toy. Get a better job than this!

I cant understand that Tony STILL is sitting in that tiny cement Cage.. I read about him for many years ago, when some good ppl was going to Court to get Tony free from his "owners" but somehow the owners convinced the judge to let them keep him at their GAS STATION where kids wher throwing bottles and stone at Tony.
How can Judges be SO mean, and have can they close their eytes for the harm tony goes through every day , I don´t understand that ppl may OWN big cats as pets, we don´t live in the 60es anymore, and the Judges also need to fight for what is right and not for what give them Money in their pockets. I hate the ppl WHO havent done anything for Tony so he could get to a sanctuary. Sorry for my horrivle English but I am 100% on TONY`s SIDE and i will STILL help him if it is possible. IT´S time for him to get Peace and feel grass under his paws instead of cement.
