Roar For Tony Day 52! Anthony’s Marr’s Blog On Tiger Truck Stop

When the world says, “Give up,”
Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”

While the newspaper photographer was taking a pic of me in front of the cage, Tony let out an awe-inspiring roar, right behind me. May be he was saying, “Free me ASAP!!!” – Anthony

The following are excerpts from Anthony Marr’s blog regarding his visit to see Tony at The Tiger Truck Stop. His complete blog can be found at: http://homosapienssaveyourearth.blogspot.com/2010/05/2010-05-25-anthony-marrs-care-7-tour.html

The drive to New Orleans the next morning, the 24th, was a 10-hour scenic cruise, including a heart-rending interlude at the “Tiger Truck Stop”, where Tony-the-Tiger has languished in a small enclosure smaller than a basketball court for the 10 years since his birth. [Friends of Tony] took it upon themselves to arrange media coverage for me, which brought out NBC Channel 33 and The Advocate newspaper.

While there, I asked the care-taker to call Michael Sandlin, the owner of the truck stop, for me to personally deliver a plea to let Tony go – to a larger and more natural-feeling big cat sanctuary to spend the rest of his days. The conversation was civil, and we mutually agreed to talk more in the coming days.

  1. How funny that the website SaveTony dot com is noted on their sign, but it hasn’t been updated in years! Not unlike the care they take of Tony himself . . .

    Thank you Anthony, for Tony.
