Please sign Tony’s petitions if you haven’t and share. Petitions are a good way to keep people supportive, involved and show Tony is still at the truck stop, as well as demonstrate the interest and support Tony has worldwide. Petition For Tony  – January 16, 2012

This petition asks the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to enforce Louisiana state law and ensure Tony is released to a reputable sanctuary.

“Louisiana Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries publicly stated it intends to enforce Louisiana law when litigation has concluded–although they could seize Tony now. State law bars Sandlin from owning and exhibiting a tiger because he did not legally own Tony when Louisiana’s big cat ban went into effect, and because Sandlin does not live on the premises where Tony is held captive.”*



sb 250 2NEW Petition – April 14, 2014:

Louisiana Senator Rick Ward has introduced bill SB 250 seeking to: “exempt certain persons from the requirements of the big exotic cats rules” (specifically to allow Michael Sandlin to keep Tony at Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete Louisiana.)

Please sign this petition targeting the Louisiana State Senate:
Oppose SB 250 & Uphold Louisiana State Law Prohibiting Private Ownership Of Tigers!

UPDATE: Louisiana State Senate PASSED SB 250 on May 13, 2014 by a vote of 20 YEAS to 18 NAYS. The petition now targets the Louisiana State House.

  1. I cant believe he is not free yet….is no one over in the US taking any notice of the thousands of people from all over the world who have petitioned to free him!!! He needs to be in his own environment 😒😒😒😒

  2. Tony is an innocent animal. He’s never done anything wrong or cruel. So why should he have to endure all the wrongs and cruelty aimed at him. This has to end.

  3. This is utterly ridiculous and how IGNORANT of people knowing that cats need MILES of territory in their natural environment WHERE THEY BELONG!!!
    PLEASE STOP exploiting this innocent BEAUTIFUL creature with NO VOICE to be heard……………………….if there is any compassion in your body, you
    will give this animal his FREEDOM into the right hands!

  4. As I live in Australia I can’t sign this particular petition,I have signed others ,by renewing Mr.Sandlins permit the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries have betrayed this beautiful , animal and resigned him to a life of misery ,confined in a concrete box,show some compassion and stop pussy footing around ,before it is too late-free-Tony.

  5. SAVE TONY I LOVE U! tigers are my favorite animals and deserve freedom

  6. This poor tiger should not be thus exploited for material gain; it’s simply a deplorable and inappropriate situation for him. Whatever subspecies he may be, it scarcely matters: there are more qualified people willing to take him. Is the “owner” more concerned with the cat, or himself?

  7. I pray that Tony is able to be free and out of that cage one day. He deserves to be somewhere safe and where he’s able to be a tiger not in a cage like an attraction at a circus.
