  1. Tony needs our help! His so-called “pool” is a pathetic excuse of what he should have in his cage. Many videos on YouTube show that this animal does not have an access to the grassy area all the time. The trucks are driving right by his cage, polluting the air with fumes. Tony also eats grass and there is no need to tell the grass is also poisoned, thanks to all those fumes.
    Sandlin already has a dead, stuffed tiger above his salad table, why should we wait for him to get a second one? People don’t need to see a tiger at a truck stop, that’s why we have zoos and sanctuaries.
