Free Tony the Truck-Stop Tiger - TAKE ACTION

Tony has lived his entire life - ten years, arguably half of his lifespan - as a truck-stop novelty. He has no companions or quality social interaction, and visitors often remark how he looks skinny and lonely.

N'd and Signed, Thanks Yrna. This is so incredibly sad! TONY needs retirement to a sanctuary!! "live" out life, with someone really taking care and looking after him, to be unharmed, and free, to not be abused by, or entertainment for our species!

Thank you for signing the petition "Free Tony the Truck-Stop Tiger"

Signed. I think I signed a previous petition on Tony's behalf. I hope and pray this one is successful and this beautiful creature is rescued and given the retirement he deserves.

To any reasonable person, this must surely be wrong. Exhibiting tigers in this way is a practice of the past, not 2011.
If the law permits then the law is as out dated and needs to be immediately amended.

May God damn who ever did this to him; its obviously a heartless, savage, sadistic maniac who doesnt know how terrible it is to live like that.
Dont worry, poor tiger, God Almighty will avenge you someday.
