The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries granted their permit to Michael Sandlin on December 14th, 2009 allowing him to keep Tony and continue exploting him as a roadside attraction at Tiger Truck Stop. This is an annual permit. Please voice your concern for Tony and your objections to the permit’s renewal by contacting the following individuals. Names highlighted in red on the list are suggested as key persons to contact regarding the permit renewal. Letters, e-mails and phone calls kept on point, factual and respectful have a better chance of receiving a response as do sending e-mails to one email address at a time rather than multiple recipients at once.

Louisiana Residents: It’s very important for your elected officials, the LDWF etc. to hear from their own constituents. So please take a few minutes to write, email or call them to let them know a tiger used as a roadside attraction in your state  is unacceptable.

  1. I just emailed every single person on this list. You need to do the same. ASAP. WE must not be silent and must continue to apply pressure at the local, state and federal levels.
    Thank you,

  2. Don’t you care for this beautiful animal at all? How would YOU like to live in that cage for a month? I bet he wouldn’t be able to last that long. Finnish people are also very concerned about Tony and we wish him to move to the Big Cat Rescue as soon as possible.

  3. With what we know about tigers being endangered, it is a travesty that we are treating them as circus animals. It is bad enough that we have taken their habitat away, poached them for medicines and money and skins but now we cage them for our amusement. It’s not right, it’s not fair but I feel Tony will only survive in a santuary or zoo because of his interaction with people. We must support the cause everyone.

  4. There is a surefire way to get Tony freed. If everyone concerned with his languishing welfare, myself included, donated $50 to free him it would amount to a sizable amount of money. A couple of thousand people would bring in $100,000. I’m sure the guy who owns Tony would part with him for that much cash. After all, guys like that only care about money, that’s why he has Tony–he brings in money. With a hundred thou he’d probably be happy, Tony would be happy and we’d be happy. So how about somebody out there who is has more time on their hands than I do organizing a Rescue Tony Fund. Hollywood celebrities? Come on, cough up some of your easily earned residuals dough and donate it to free this tiger. And I mean FREE him–send him to one of the Indian parks for rehabilitation and release.

    Roger Carondelet
  5. Please free Tong the Tuck shopTiger he needs his freedom these awesome creatures should not be kept in the sort of place – i plead to your humane side and ask with desperation to give this wonder animal Big Cat a new live and give him his freedom

    Angelos J. Angeletos
  9. Free Tony, this is nothing but cruelty to a great animal.

  10. Let poor tony free NOW it is a big SCANDAL!


  12. It is a Scandal with this poor Tony, let him free immediately
