Remember Tony During Louisiana Week For The Animals   5 comments

Louisiana Governor Jindal has proclaimed March 19 – 27th 2011 as The Third Annual Louisiana Week For The Animals.   There has been an ongoing action for Tony directed at Governor Jindal asking him to address Tony’s situation. Please make a point of contacting the Governor during this week about Tony; it’s especially important for Louisiana residents to advocate on Tony’s behalf.  Please keep your correspondence on point and respectful – while we all are passionate about Tony’s situation, composed and courteous letters, phone calls, etc. have a better chance of being taken seriously.

  1. i have posted on my face book page, there should be a facebook page for tony’s plea, you tube him, get peta involved anything.. get im out of there..

  2. I read about Tony last year we signed off a bunch of us on a petition where did that petiton go is it on the mayors desk where is it and why hasn’t he been rescued.

    exotic animals are not meant to be attractions or kept in cramped cages they are to be in sancturies if held in captivity it goes against what they stand for….. Get him out now and stop the abuse of this tiger.. …. his owner is a tormentor let him go and stop making money off him and get a real job make your own money…

  3. I just sent another letter to the Gov’nor, shaming him for not doing something for Tony . . .

  4. Thanks for the posting am passing on to many and asking that they call the governor’s office at 225-342-7015 to protest Tony being held at the truck stop. This is animal cruelty for sure.
