Roar For Tony TODAY! Contact Governor Bobby Jindal   2 comments

This great action alert for Tony from Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL, which is very important to act on, targets most all of the key decision makers regarding the LDWF permit except for a few, one being Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. Two weeks ago we had a “call in/write in” day to the Governor and TODAY we’ll be doing this again.

Contact the Governor and express your concerns for Tony’s health and welfare,  and your objections to the renewal of the Lousiana Depatment of Wildlife and Fisheries permit to Tony’s owner Michael Sandlin

  • Call Governor Jindal’s office:

1-225-342-7015 and 1-225-342-0991.

  • This link will take you to Governor Jindal’s online email form. You do NOT have to be a resident of Louisiana or a US citizen. As you fill in the contact info you will come to PARISH – click on the drop sown menu and scroll down to the bottom where you will see “out of state”.

  1. please show some compassion for tony and release him to an animal sanctuary where this king will be free to roam and breed more of his kind. do not let this truck stop owner exploit tony for money any longer. he has been cited in the past with numerous violations regarding the substandard care tony has received. do not let him cage any other animal. the size of the cage is enough to drive a human insane. god put this magnificent cat on earth to be cherished, respected, protected and admired from afar. please do the right thing for tony.

    • Thank you for supporting Free Tony The Tiger. An accredited big cat sanctuary, such as Big Cat Rescue of Tampa FL, does not breed, sell, buy, or trade their cats. What a sanctuary such as Big Cat Rescue could provide Tony is a natural spacious habitat of earth, grass, trees, logs, a den, a pool, enrichment, proper diet and medical care and the respect Tony deserves. If the LDWF’s priorities are Tony health and welfare, and not the special interest of his owner, they will revoke the permit, otherwise they sentence Tony to another year of inadequate care in the unacceptable environment of a truck stop.
