If you missed ALDF’s recent webinar on captive wildlife, you can watch a recording of the session here.

“Matthew Liebman, Director of Litigation for the Animal Legal Defense Fund, teaches participants how animal advocates are using state and federal laws to protect wild animals in captivity. This webinar will focus on groundbreaking litigation brought by the Animal Legal Defense Fund under the Endangered Species Act, the Animal Welfare Act, and state laws. The cases have sought to liberate Lolita the Orca, Candy the Chimpanzee, Tony the Tiger, Ben the Bear, and others from inhumane captivity.”

Tony’s case was covered extensively. We truly appreciate ALDF’s commitment to Tony and to his release to a reputable big cat sanctuary. They have the positive support of Tony’s friends from all over the world.

The Animal Legal Defense Fund is the leading force in “protecting the lives and advancing the interests of animals through the legal system.”

Animals used in entertainment suffer tremendously both physically and mentally – and Animal Legal Defense Fund’s Executive Director Stephen Wells’ article recounted some of ALDF’s cases including Tony, orca Lolita, Lucky the elephant and bears Ricki and Ben.

ALDF is fighting a lengthy legal battle to allow Tony, a tiger held captive in a truck stop parking lot in Gross Tete, Louisiana, to be moved to a sanctuary. Tony’s owner, Michael Sandlin, has aggressively fought to keep Tony at his truck stop, but ALDF will continue to fight on Tony’s behalf.
