Sadly Sandlin one thing you said is correct - You choose where he goes because the laws are backwards BUT as you can see YOU do NOT get to decide "IF" he leaves the courts do! TONY will NOT be at Tiger Truck Stop forever THE JUDGE HAS RULED~
The individuals deciding Tony’s fate had the opportunity to give him a safe, clean home with proper medical care, food and enrichment, and still they chose to let him continue to suffer at the truck stop.
Tony is exploited 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and breathes in the fumes and endures the noise of trucks and cars, as well as the taunting of ignorant people. This is not a healthy environment for him. How can anyone condone such living conditions as these for any animal?
Laws were broken and changed to cater to one individual, Michael Sandlin, whose greed, selfishness and cruelty were more important to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries and the Iberville Parish Council than the welfare of Tony.
People all over the world voiced their concern for Tony on social networking sites, by signing petitions and contacting the LDWF and anyone else who they thought could help free Tony, but their pleas went unanswered and were ignored.
If Michael Sandlin truly cared about Tony he would have released him to such a sanctuary, but his only concern is to exploit Tony as a money-making gimmick.
To allow such a blatant display of animal cruelty to continue is very sad and disturbing and makes one wonder what more was involved in this decision. All those involved in this horrendous verdict, as well as those who did nothing to help Tony, should be ashamed – to allow this magnificent cat to continue to suffer is in itself a cruel and inhumane act.
