Today!! FOR TONY: Call Governor Jindal & Secretary Barham   2 comments

Please show your support FOR TONY TODAY by calling the LDWF Secretary Robert Barham and Governor Bobby Jindal and requesting the Louisiana Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries revoke their permit to Mr. Michael Sandlin. Share this on Facebook, Twitter, etc. It’s important for us to continue voicing our objections to the permit renewal.

 Phone Numbers:

Governor Bobby Jindal:

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

Secretary Robert Barham:

1-225-765-2623

Sample Call In:

My name is __________________ and I am calling to object to the renewal of the Louisiana Dept. of Wildlife & Fisheries permit to Mr. Michael Sandlin, owner of Tony The Truck Stop Tiger located in Grosse Tete Louisiana. I am extremely concerned for the health and welfare of Tony who has been used as a roadside attraction at the truck stop for 10 years. The Louisiana Dept. of Wildlife & Fisheries must uphold their position on privately owned tigers by revoking this permit and relocating Tony to an accredited big cat sanctuary.

For Residents of Louisiana:

My name is ___________________ and as a resident of  (state your city)   Louisiana  I am calling to object to the renewal of the Louisiana Dept. of Wildlife & Fisheries permit to Mr. Michael Sandlin, owner of Tony The Truck Stop Tiger located in Grosse Tete Louisiana. I am extremely concerned for the health and welfare of Tony who has been used as a roadside attraction at the truck stop for 10 years. The Louisiana Dept. of Wildlife & Fisheries must uphold their position on privately owned tigers by revoking this permit and relocating Tony to an accredited big cat sanctuary.

 For your reference this is the LDWF position statement on privately owned tigers:

”It is the Department’s position that private possession of tigers poses a significant hazard to public safety and is detrimental to the health of the animal. Prolonged confinement is by its nature stressful to tigers and proper long-term care by experienced persons is essential to the health of the animal.”
