THE BATTLE IS REAL…ITS STILL A CAGE AT A TRUCK STOP

by Roar for Tony the Tiger~ Legal Battle on Friday, 30 December 2011 at 08:38

As another New Year approaches, and we have gained many new Tony supporters and have faced much new opposition from all the Private Owners of exotic animals, due to the new arrival of G. W. Exotics in Oklahoma trying to get Tony…and the new attention on this long ongoing case……we wanted to post a photo reminder as to why this battle was waged years ago and express our view on private ownership.

This photo of Tony was Taken in 2010, his cage had zero enrichment. zero. He was found to be underfed and underweight by the USDA on January 11, 2011, not so long ago, now was it. Mr. Sandlin was warned by the USDA to increase Tony’s diet. So those of us that have been here fighting for Tony to be sent to an accredited Sanctuary will never forget the photos, the sad videos on youtube from years before, the time when no one cared enough to help Tony. Regardless of your views on Private Ownership if a Tiger looked like Tony did last year, even private owners should have been outraged.

WHERE THE HECK WHERE ALL OF THE PRIVATE OWNERS BEFORE THE SPOTLIGHT TURNED ON?

DONT GET US WRONG HERE, WE APPRECIATE YOUR NEW FOUND EFFORTS THE LAST SIX MONTHS ~ TRYING TO MAKE TONY’S LIFE IN CAPTIVITY AS WONDERFUL AS IT CAN POSSIBLY BE MR SANDLIN…….BUT ITS STILL A CAGE AT A TRUCK STOP. I CHALLENGE ANYONE TO SIT THERE FOR 11 YEARS IN THAT CAGE WITH THE HUM OF A DIESEL ENGINE IN YOUR EAR FOR 24/7. HE STILL HAS NO POOL TO DIVE INTO AND SWIM, HES AFRAID OF THAT HORSE TROUGH….AND ITS STILL A TRUCK STOP. WE WONT SUPPORT TONY BEING THERE, SORRY. DAILY TAUNTING BY TOURISTS IS NO LIFE FOR A TIGER….

ONE FACT IS THIS AND WE WONT FORGET IT: TONY DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING UNTIL THE THREAT OF LOSING HIM ARRIVED AND the PRIVATE OWNERS OF EXOTICS BEFRIENDED MR. SANDLIN, AND HELPED HIM BY IMPROVING ON TONY’S DIET, ADDED IN A FEW BELLS AND WHISTLES TO THE CAGE AND NOW THEY EXPECT US TO WALK AWAY….AND JUMP ON THE BAND WAGON THAT ITS YOUR RIGHTS AS A U.S. CITIZEN TO OWN AN EXOTIC PET.

UNFORTUNATELY THE LAWS ALLOW IT, AND THE LAWS NEED UPGRADING….AS NOT EVERY PRIVATE OWNER IS PLAYING BY THE RULES AND TREATING THEIR EXOTIC PROPERLY, WHO WE KIDDING HERE.

THERE ARE MANY OF YOU AND MANY OF US. THE BATTLE IS REAL. THE PROBLEM IN THIS COUNTRY IS REAL. LET THE WAR WAGE ON, UNTIL ALL ANIMALS ARE FREE FROM HARM AND THE LAWS ARE CHANGED TO PROTECT THE VOICELESS, THOSE THAT RIGHT NOW ARE UNFORTUNATELY HIDDEN IN BACK YARDS, IN SMALL CAGES, ABUSED, NEGLECTED WITH NO SHELTER, NO FOOD, THE ONES WE CAN’T SEE

AND IF THE LAWS REMAIN IN PLACE SO YOU ARE ABLE TO “OWN” AN EXOTIC, MAY YOU FIND IT IN YOUR HEART TO TREAT THEM WITH THE PROPER CARE, PROVIDE PROPER ENRICHMENTS AND SHELTER…AND GIVE THEM THE BEST LIFE POSSIBLE FOR THEM IN CAPTIVITY, AND IF YOU CAN’T DO THAT….WE WILL FIND YOU AND BE THEIR VOICE.

MR SANDLIN MAY YOU HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR AND FIND IT IN YOUR HEART TO DO WHATS ALWAYS RIGHT FOR TONY.
