There is a new petition to help have Tony removed from the Tiger Truck Stop and placed in a more appropriate home at a wild life sanctuary. The petition lists the long history of violations at the truck stop regarding Tony's care.
This is the 21st century. The practice of exploiting animals as a road side attraction belongs back in the Dark Ages. As for Sandlin's "personal rights" to own a tiger, does that mean I have the personal rights to keep a shark or piranha in my backyard swimming pool, just as long as I have a tall fence around it?? And what about Tony's rights not to breathing in diesel fumes and being taunted night and day by the people visiting the truck stop which is open 24 hrs.?
My pets live in my house with me. I take them for walks and play with them in the back yard. I'm here for them when they get scared during thunder storms. What Sandlin has is a wild animal that he is exploiting for profit and it is sickening. He has raffled off and sold previous tiger cubs to people passing through, and has one of his dead tigers stuffed and on display over the salad bar in his truck stop restaurant. What type of deranged person does that to a "family member"??? This man is morally bankrupt and all that matters to him is the almighty dollar. I feel so sorry for Tony...
