According to the sign posted on Tony's cage, he was born in July 2000 - this month marking his 14th year. It is reported that Tony was acquired by Michael Sandlin as a 6 month old cub from a Texas breeder.

Your comment is awaiting moderation:

Tony is not an “entertainment center” and was never intended to be one. God created Tony, and his siblings, to roam freely in the jungles of the rain forest. Instead, Michael Sandlin got his dirty, filthy, hands on him and has kept Tony captive in a cage at his gas station where Tony is forced to inhale the gas fumes. Regardless of the sign on the outside of his cage, Sandlin encourages his customers to throw sticks and stones through Tony’s cage. This is NO life for Tony. Please override Louisiana’s law, which was created for Michael Sandlin to permit him to keep Tony at his gas station and send Tony to the Busch Gardens Zoo where he can be taken care of by professional vets and staff who make it their mission to take care of the animals. And please make it impossible for Sandlin to “own” Tony again; to find and or locate him. Once Tony has been placed in reputable sanctuary, do NOT publish his where-abouts in magazines, online, or on TV. It will be much safer for Tony if no one knows of his new location.

Both petitions already signed. Thanks so, so, much Julie!

Noted and have signed many many petitions for this beautiful Tiger and have just signed the Change .org one with this comment ~ Because beautiful TONY should be enjoying his freedom in a sanctuary running around and having fun instead of NOISE,FUMES AND LITTLE SPACE in that hellhole he has to endure day and night,i will never know how he sleeps with all the noise from the trucks 24/7!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have just watched the video of TJ enjoying his new home having so much fun and freedom it warms my heart and looking at poor Tony my heart is saddened for him and his awful life and so many years he has had to live in that truck stop,if Sandlin really loved Tony he would allow for him to go to a sanctuary,he keeps him for making money out of Tony's suffering,i noticed a donation box attached to his cage and i wonder who benefits from the money donated,TONY i suspect NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Signed with hope in my heart for Tony.Thank you Julie.Liz Xx

Organise protests outside the governors offices??? Get help/ backing from high profile Hollywood identities who champion animals... The maybe the media might get onside. One would think that with so many petitions having been signed and submitted a better outcome would have been achieved by now? There's a need to turn up the heat, publicly.

It seems that maybe the only way this poor baby will ever get out of that hell hole is if someone will go in there, in the dark of night, and take Tony and bring him to a sanctuary. The powers that be sure as hell don't care and won't release Tony. Bastards.

With Tony now being 14 yrs old, he should be in a sanctuary. His owner is using him as a diversion to get people to stop, and maybe buy at his truck stop.
