Tony still waiting in his prison

Back on November 3rd, the article was published about the huge victory for Tony the Truck Stop Tiger.  The Animal Legal Defense Fund (ADLF) in concert with advocates for Tony had succeeded in getting a court decision that the permit to keep Tony imprisoned was unlawfully issued and would be revoked, with no new permits ever being issued.  You can read that story here.

Sadly, the good news has been short-lived.  On November 30th, Tony’s guardian and owner of the Tiger Truck Stop, Michael Sandlin, has filed an appeal of the decision.  Also, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries filed papers regarding the decision that stated they were responsible for the costs.

All of this legal wrangling means that Tony stays right where he is.  This is even in the face of the fact that the current permit expires this month, regardless of the court decision.

Tony is an 11-year-old Siberian-Bengal tiger who has been used as nothing more than an attraction at the truck stop, living in an enclosure where he is taunted by tourists and breathes the gas and diesel fumes constantly.  The fight to free Tony has gone on for years, with roadblocks being thrown up at every turn trying to keep him in this prison.  You can read Tony’s story in detail at the Free Tony the Tiger website linked below.

The youngest advocate in Tony’s campaign, 11-year-old Breawna Smith, visited Tony on November 19th and took several videos.  The video provided here courtesy of Ms. Smith is one she had created called “Tony’s Journey” and includes her narration of a poem she wrote for him.  It’s heartbreaking to see this magnificent animal reduced to this existence. You can visit her YouTube site at the link below to view all of the videos she’s taken of Tony.

Who knows how long this latest round of legal maneuvers will take, all the while as Tony waits. Even though Judge R. Michael Caldwell agreed that the permit should be revoked, which would have set Tony free, Sandlin simply won’t allow Tony to have that peaceful life.  He wants his “main attraction” to stay, bringing in the customers and of course, the income.

It appears that Tony is caught in the middle of a tug-of-war between what’s right and just, and pure and simple greed.  This magnificent animal is wasting away right before our very eyes, while the slow wheels of bureaucracy grind on.

The petition at Care2 is linked below.  While advocates believed their voices had been heard and Tony was finally to be free, such is not the case and your voices are still needed for Tony.  Please consider adding your voice to this petition for Tony.  (The petitions at Care2 normally allow for anyone from any country to sign.)

Advocates in Tony’s campaign have vowed to never give up.  As his staunchest supporter and Founder of the Free Tony the Tiger campaign, Sky Williamson’s motto says: “Until His Last Breath…” That one statement says it all.

Don’t give up Tony.  Advocates everywhere are fighting for you to finally know the peaceful life you so deserve.

Judge Rules To Remove Tiger From Grosse Tete Truck Stop

Owner: Every American Should
Have The Right To Own Exotic Animals

WDSU.com

The debate over whether a tiger
can remain as an attraction at a Grosse Tete truck stop has been clawed at for
years. A state judge ruled that the Tiger Truck Stop owner could no longer keep
his tiger, Tony, at the gas station. Michael Sandlin, Tony’s owner, said
thousands have come to marvel at the exotic animal on display at the truck stop.
“We’re from Florida and we were on our way to Texas and it was kind of amazing
to see a big cat here,” said Jody McGahan, a Tiger Truck Stop customer. “He’s
beautiful” “Every American should have the right to own an exotic animal of
their choice if they’re financially and morally capable of taking care of that
animal,” Sandlin said. The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries gave Sandlin a
permit to keep the tiger, but a nonprofit group, the Animal Legal Defense Fund
filed a lawsuit against the agency in a bid to have the cat moved to a more
natural setting.

“They want to yank him
from the only home he’s known for the past 10 years and the people that he’s
known and send him to another cage somewhere where he won’t have that,” Sandlin
said.

The paddock the animal is kept in appears larger than some zoo
exhibits with a grassy area, a tank for the tiger to swim in, toys, shade and an
air conditioned room for Tony. The barred cage is surrounded by a barbed-wire
fence and the truck stop is staffed 24 hours, Sandlin said. Regardless, a judge
will have to decide if the attraction will be allowed to stay. “He’s beautiful.
I would miss him,” McGahan said. Sandlin hasn’t filed an appeal yet, but his
attorney said he plans to do so. The Animal Legal Defense Fund said it will
“continue to do everything we can to make sure Tony’s next home is a reputable,
accredited sanctuary that can give Tony the life he deserves.”

For Legal Reasons this was not going to be posted until after the trial but since 2 pages have already posted it- I guess there is NO reason not to share it now. Think about it – why would Sandlin get a physical for Tony right before court? Use your common sense…..

DO NOTICE HOW SHANNON THE VET DARTS TONY ON TOP OF THE
CONCRETE DEN THEREFORE HE CAN FALL OFF AND BREAK HIS NECK. WOULD IT HAVE BEEN
SO HARD TO THROW A PIECE OF MEAT DOWN ON THE FLOOR SO HE WAS NOT IN DANGER OF
FALLING????? SO IN REALITY THE MOST DANGEROUS PART OF SEDATING TONY WAS THAT
THE VET DID IT IN A PLACE WHERE HE COULD HAVE FELL AND BROKE
BONES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

RIGHT FROM THE START THE LIES BEGIN- TONY HAS ONLY HAD A VET SINCE 2008. HE NEVER HAD ONE BEFORE. 2.) AFTER ALL THE FIGHTING ABOUT SEDATION LOOK WHAT THEY DID. ★★★MESSAGE FOR JOE EXOTIC-MR. EXPERT★★★ LOOK JOE EXOTIC ONCE AGAIN YOU MADE AN A** OUT OF YOURSELF AND YOUR WORDS ARE BITING YOU IN THE A**

EXCUSE ME! YOU DO NOT “CLEAN” TEETH WITH PLIERS- YOU PULL TEETH WITH THEM. YOU GUYS REALLY THINK WE ARE A BUNCH OF REALLY DUMB PEOPLE………
THE VIDEO SAYS TONY PASSES WITH FLYING COLORS……… HOW COULD YOU POSSIBLY KNOW THAT WITHOUT GETTING THE TEST RESULTS BACK??????

THIS IS WHAT JAMES PLATT POSTED: “that is one awful song! too bad you had to have this done, but it proves you were right and Tony is okay”.

THIS IS THE SAME IDIOT THAT CLAIMS THAT HE DID SO MUCH TO HELP TONY TO FREEDOM!!!!!!

As we are all fully aware lately there has been an uproar of people supporting Sandlin’s right to keep Tony, this is not about anyone’s rights to own a tiger, this is about the neglect, and unfit living conditions Tony has been in for 11 long years. It is only since May 2011 that Mr. Sandlin starting to realize that he may lose Tony when the Animal Legal Defense Fund came on board. Just 8 months ago the USDA visited Tony and this is their written report below. (copy of actual letter on file).

 

JANUARY 11, 2011 USDA WRITTEN REPORT:

 

“WITH REGARD TO TONY’S WEIGHT, WE BELIEVE THAT HE IS CURRENTLY UNDERWEIGHT. WE HAVE DISCUSSED THIS CONCERN WITH THE OWNER AND ATTENDING VETERINARIAN, AND THEY HAVE INCREASED TONY’S CALORIC INTAKE. IN ADDITION, THE ATTENDING VETERINARIAN PLANS TO CONDUCT ANOTHER FULL VETERINARY EVALUATION, INCLUDE ROUTINE BLOOD WORK, IN THE SPRING. WHILE IT IS TOO SOON TO DETERMINE IF TONY’S INCREASED CALORIC INTAKE HAS HAD ANY EFFECT, WE ASSURE YOU THAT OUR AGENCY WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR TIGER TRUCK STOP, INC. TO ENSURE THAT THE FACILITY MAINTAINS THE AWA MINIMUM STANDARDS. WE APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ADDRESS YOUR CONCERNS.”

 

SINCERELY,

NOW KEEP IN MIND TONY WAS SO BAD THEY SPOKE TO MR. SANDLIN SO THIS WAS IN JANUARY…THIS NEW “WE LOVE TONY, SEE ALL HIS NEW STUFF ATTITUDE AND ALL THE NEW FRIENDS SANDLIN HAS RECENTLY ACQUIRED DUE TO A LARGE SPOTLIGHT SHINING ON THEM NOW DOES NOT CHANGE OUR OPINION THAT TONY WAS NEGLECTED FOR ELEVEN LONG YEARS AND STILL TO THIS DATE HAS NOT HAD ANY BLOOD WORK, NOR ANY HANDS-ON PHYSICAL EXAM. HIS CHARMING VET DR. GONSOULIN ONLY DOES VISUAL EXAMS. THIS WILL NOT CHANGE. OUR BELIEF IS, IF YOU HAVE A TIGER, AN AMAZING MAJESTIC ANIMAL; TAKE CARE OF IT, END OF STORY. JUST BECAUSE YOU NOW REALIZE YOU BETTER SHAPE UP OR TONY SHIPS OUT IS NOT CHANGING OUR MINDS. TOO LITTLE TOO LATE.

 

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT WE KEEP MOVING FORWARD AND HOPE THAT TONY WINS IN COURT AND A PEACEFUL RESOLUTION AND A NEW HOME FOR TONY IS FOUND SO HE CAN LIVE WITH ENRICHMENT…. WITHOUT THE NOISE OF TIGER TRUCK STOP, WITHOUT THE DRAMA OF PEOPLE SURROUNDING THIS CASE AND WE WISH ONLY BEST INTENTIONS FOR TONY…HE DOES NOT NEED TO BE SENT ANYWHERE, WHERE THERE IS CONTROVERSY……..IF HE WINS HIS FREEDOM…

 

MR. SANDLIN HOW ABOUT THROWING TONY SOME CARDBOARD BOXES TO PLAY WITH THAT ARE FREE!!!!

 

 

WE ALSO FOUND THIS INTERESTING BIT OF INFO…WHEN SOMEONE RECENTLY SHARED WITH US A RECENT EMAIL FROM THE LOUISIANA DEPT. OF WILDLIFE & FISHERIES, IF YOU NOTICE, HE NEVER MENTIONS THE COURT DATE COMING UP ON OCTOBER 17, 2011, WHERE THE LDWF IS TRYING TO GET CASE CANCELED!!! TRICKY POLITICS IS RUNNING THIS CASE…..SOMEONE IS PULLING FAVORS…..DON’T THINK THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL GAME/GAIN.

 

COPY OF EMAIL:

 

The District Court judge’s ruling back in May that would have prevented any additional permits being issued to Tony’s owner was overturned by the Appellate Court and sent back to the District Judge for re-hearing.

 

The next scheduled court hearing on this issue is set for November 2, 2011.

Ruling in Tiger Truck Stop case tossed

Aug. 30, 2011, 9:14 a.m. CDT

The Advocate
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A Baton Rouge appeals court has threw out a judge’s ruling that barred state officials from issuing any new permits to an Iberville Parish truck stop to keep a 550-pound tiger on display.
On Monday, a three-judge panel of the state’s 1st Circuit Court of Appeal sent the matter back to state District Judge Mike Caldwell for another hearing. The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/mSOKZT ) the court ruled that Tiger Truck Stop Inc. in Grosse Tete and its owner, Michael Sandlin, deserve to be heard.
Caldwell’s ruling in May came after the Animal Legal Defense Fund sued the state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to have Tony, a Siberian-Bengal mix, removed from the Interstate 10 truck stop.
Only attorneys for the animal rights group and the state agency took part in the first hearing.
Caldwell later denied Sandlin’s and Tiger Truck Stop’s request for a new trial.
First Circuit Judges Edward “Jimmy” Gaidry, Michael McDonald and Jeff Hughes said Sandlin and the truck stop “were parties needed for just adjudication in this case.”
The appellate court reversed Caldwell’s denial of the new trial request, vacated his May ruling in favor of the Animal Legal Defense Fund and sent the matter back to him “for further proceedings.”

AS OF TODAY 8.28.2011 {87,572} PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT TONY DOES NOT BELONG AT A TRUCK STOP.

NEVER STOP ASSISTING THE ANIMAL LEGAL DEFENSE FUND (ALDF) FROM COLLECTING AS MANY NAMES ON THEIR PETITIONS AS POSSIBLE. THERE ARE THREE ONGOING PETITIONS CIRCULATING FOR TONY.

 TWO ARE ISSUED BY THE ALDF ONE THROUGH CHANGE.ORG AND THE THIRD PETITION THROUGH CARE2.  SO FAR {87,572} SIGNATURES HAVE BEEN SIGNED.  THAT MEANS {87,572} PEOPLE

DO NOT BELIEVE TONY SHOULD BE LIVING AND USED AS A ROAD SIDE ATTRACTION AT A TRUCK STOP!

THAT IS A LOT OF PEOPLE. I AM SURE THERE ARE STILL SO MANY WONDERFUL CARING PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT WHERE TONY HAS HAD TO LIVE FOR ALL 11 YEARS OF HIS LIFE. I AM ALSO SURE THOSE PEOPLE THAT ARE NOT AWARE HAVE NOT SIGNED HIS PETITIONS. 

PLEASE KEEP THESE PETITIONS CIRCULATING FOR TONY, AS FAR AND AS WIDE AS YOU CAN CIRCULATE THEM! THE INTERNET IS ENDLESS SO PLEASE KEEP POSTING THEM EVERYWHERE FOR TONY!

AS WE CONTINUE TO DO OUR PART AND WHILE THE ALDF DOES THEIR’S, LET’S GET THOSE PETITIONS MOVING QUICKLY ONCE AGAIN, AND LET’S GET MORE PEOPLE WRITING TO THE LOUISIANA DEPT. WILDLIFE AND FISHERIES. 

JUST SEND A QUICK RESPECTFUL NOTE, THROUGH THEIR FAST EFFICIENT ONLINE LINK ASKING THAT THEY THINK LONG AND HARD AS TO WHERE TONY WILL BE RELOCATED AND FOR THEM TO USE THEIR “INFLUENCE” ON MAKING SURE TONY IS PLACED IN ONE OF THE BEST SANCTUARIES THAT IS SUITED FOR HIM AND HIS NEEDS, AND NOT ONE THAT WILL TAKE TONY OUT OF A BAD ENVIRONMENT TO ONE THAT IS “WORSE”.

ATTACHED ARE THE THREE PETITIONS FOR YOU TO CIRCULATE:



ATTACHED BELOW IS THE ONLINE CONTACT INFO. FOR THE LOUISIANA DEPT. OF WILDLIFE AND FISHERIES (LDWF).  WRITING THEM EVERY DAY IS A QUICK AND EASY WAY TO LET THEM KNOW HOW CONCERNED WE ARE, THAT TONY BE PLACED IN THE PROPER SANCTUARY. 

REMEMBER THIS IS AN ONLINE WAY TO SUBMIT YOUR LETTERS~IT IS THE FASTEST WAY POSSIBLE TO DO THIS FOR TONY!

SOME OF YOU STILL AT TIMES ARE NOT SURE HOW TO CONTINUE TO HELP TONY; WHILE WE WAIT FOR THE COURTS TO DECIDE TONY’S DESTINY. ABOVE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP, ALSO MAKING SURE THAT THE RIGHT PEOPLE HEAR THAT WHERE TONY IS LOCATED IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS TONY LEAVING TIGER TRUCK STOP.

Saving Tony The Tiger

Airdate: Thu, Aug 11, 2011

Call in number to speak with the host

(646) 716-9947
 
Just when I loose faith in our youth today, along comes an 11 year old young lady with a passion for large cats. Well, all my loyal listeners know that the way to my heart is through cats of all shapes, sizes, and breeds. This one young person has made it her mission to save Tony The Tiger who has been locked in a cement and iron prison, alone, for over 10 years at a truck stop while putting up with being alone, teased, harrassed, loud sounds at all hours of the day and night and inhaling toxic fumes.
Join me as I talk to this little package of huge inspiration and we will hear all about what she has done to help Tony become free. Now we have won one battle. The owner of the truck stop was denied a renewal license to keep Tony but his current license doesn’t end until the end of December. Poor Tony needed to be set free 10 years ago!
So be sure not to miss this show. Let little Breawna inspire you just as she has inspired me and hundreds of other people whom she has met. She even created a T-shirt line to help free Tony.
See you in cyberspace. Pawz up! Ice……..
