Time Is Crucial! If anyone has been to Tiger Truck Stop and can provide eyewitness reports, photos and videos of Tony, or if there are any veterinarians and experts who can attest to the detrimental effects on a tiger’s health caused by living at a truck stop – please contact Big Cat Rescue – Tampa Florida at  See detailed info below. Tony’s health, welfare and LIFE are at stake.

Reminder: See Tony’s “Take Action” page for information on how you can voice your objections to the renewal of the LDWF permit to Tiger Truck Stop.

The following was posted by Big Cat Rescue – Tampa Florida today – October 22, 2010 at: Once again, Thank you BCR for your continued support of Tony and for everything you do for all the cats.

From Big Cat Rescue: Tony Truck Stop Tiger Permit Renewal:

Tiger Truck Stop owner, Michael Sandlin’s, permit to keep Tony the tiger at the truck stop in Grosse Tete, LA is up for renewal soon and with your help the LA. Dept. of Wildlife & Fisheries and USDA  may choose to not renew him.  This would enable Tony to move to a sanctuary away from the torment of being kept on concrete, breathing gas fumes and being annoyed by every carload of yahoos that drive through.

Here is what we need:

Veterinarians who will send us notorized affidavits that it is unhealthy to cage an animal at a truck stop next to gas pumps due to the fumes from the pumps and the 24/7 traffic of diesel trucks.

Statements from veterinarians and other experts that attest to the fact that being kept on concrete is detrimental to the health and comfort of big cats.  He has a grass yard, but is often prevented from accessing it, and there is no shade there. 

Eye witness reports, photos and videos of Tony living in squalor at the Tiger Truck Stop.

Please mail these to or 12802 Easy St. Tampa, FL 33625
