One of Tony’s young supporters, Breawna Smith, asked her parents to make an 8 hour drive from their Florida home to visit Tony at Tiger Truck Stop. Breawna made a heartfelt video for Tony and it was very touching when she left flowers and a note for him. Please see the video and leave your comments: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCDeL_ujeZU
It is truly inspiring to see this young girl touched by Tony’s story and speaking up for him.
Thank You Breawna – you are a great friend and advocate for Tony and we truly appreciate your support of Tony.

Advocating for Tony not only exposes Tony’s situation, but also gives a name and face to the 1,000’s of other tigers privately owned in the United States who are exploited in entertainment shows, roadside zoos and circuses, photos ops, bred for profit and are kept as pets.
