He needs to go to a sanctuary where he can be free to roam with other tigers! Maybe someone can break him out!! So cruel. Thx Ruth!

Noted with sadness for TONY,i weep tears for him to have to live each day with all the noise from the traffic 24/7 and the fumes from the petrol station what a miserable so called life!!!!!! I thought he was being sent to a sanctuary ages ago,Micheal Sandlin only keeps him at the truck stop so it brings in people and MONEY,he does'nt give a dam for poor suffering TONY otherwise he would let him be free and able to roam in the fresh air at a sanctuary.I live in hope that he will be freed some time soon!!! Thank you dear Ruth.Liz Xx

I have to add that the comments on the link are very supportive of Tony living out his life at the truck stop
and practically sickening about what a great animal lover Tony's owner / jailer is !

Thank you for posting this. Sad reading :(

We must get him out of the cage and into a sanctuary asap. He is suffering, he is depressed, he is losing his muscles, he may be fed bad food... Poor Tony... :(

It is so devastating that the protests are not heard!!!! This time they have to do something and give Tony a dignifying life!!!! This is not a life! Thanks Ruth
