I just received this email today, so what is this about?
Dear Shalvah,

On Jun 10, 2014, you signed the petition "Last Chance to Help Tony the Tiger!". The petition author , Kelly Rogers, has now closed the petition and wanted to share this message with you:

---------------------------------

Thank-You, for your interest in this action. However, I is with an incredibly heavy heart, I am letting you know why I am closing it. I am closing this petition because there is sad and angering news to share with you. Gov. Jindal DID SIGN the bill and REFUSES TO VETO it. The fight is not over however. Tony, sends you a huge kiss for helping him to get out of his hell.

Dear Mr. Sandlin,

My name is Barb Knight and I love tigers. I am concerned for Tony's health, welfare, and future.

I know you care about Tony also. I know you want the best for Tony. However, his life could be cut

short living at The Truck Stop, inhaling gas fumes 24/7. Please send him to a sanctuary where he can

be monitored on a daily basis and be in an open grassy area where he can stretch his legs with his

fellow tigers: do not send Tony to another roadside zoo or display.

I am asking you to think with your heart, not your wallet. Please do the right thing by extending Tony's

life to include a tiger sanctuary.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Barb Knight.

I also noticed the article was written in Dec 2011 but hey, if we can keep the pressure on, a little longer, why not?

It is heartbreaking to see that the owner of the gas station has just the right political connection in order to get away with that. Tony should be moved immediately.

Unfortunately, I am unable to close this story. GOV. JINDAL DID SIGN THE BILL AND REFUSES TO VETO IT. The fight is not over so more petitions will come in the future. Please be on the look-out for them. Thank-You, for your love of him.
