Save Tony the Tiger From His Truck Stop Cage

  • Target: Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries
  • Sponsored by: Care2.com

Petition Overview:

For the past ten years, a Siberian-Bengal tiger named Tony has lived in a cage at the Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete, Louisiana.

Tony has spent the past decade in a small enclosure that is devoid of any forms of enrichment, like trees, logs or other plants that would allow him to live like a tiger should. He has suffered through ten hot and humid Louisianna summers with no pool of water large enough to cool himself. Day and night, Tony’s sensitive ears and nose are subjected to the loud drone of the nearby freeway and the noise and noxious fumes from the idling trucks.

The years in the truck stop enclosure are hard on Tony and veterinary experts believe that he needs to be relocated and properly cared for in order to be healthy and happy. Demand that Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries stand up for Tony the Tiger and turn him over to an organization that could give him the environment he needs.

Petition:

I am outraged and horrified at the conditions that Tony the tiger is living in at the Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete, Louisiana.

For a decade, this beautiful tiger has suffered through heat, pollution, harassment and unhealthy living conditions. His owner has been cited by the USDA due to violations of the Animal Welfare Act, including a lack of proper sanitation and improper feeding practices, and it is clear that he cannot care for Tony properly.

I urge you to force Tony’s owner to give him to an organisation that can give him the care and respect that he deserves.
