This week Justin Bieber was cautioned by the German Authorities for having a 'Pet' Monkey. How can a young man think it is ok to have a wild animal such as a Monkey which are social animals, he was told that the Monkey "is a living animal & not a fashion accessory".

Unfortunately the trade in wild animals causes suffering to thousands of animals, just like Tony the Truck Stop Tiger they are forced to live an uncomfortable and unnatural life purely for amusement and curiosity of a few people.

I am not an animal activist, but I just wish the exploitation of animals would stop. Why can't people appreciate wild animals in their own habitat and leave them there to live a normal life. The owners of these so called pets say they are "happy & well cared for". Do you think Tony is happy left to live on hard rough Concrete 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with nothing to do, but stare at the wire cage which has held him for over 11 years?

Tony is only allowed to use his grass Enclosure for a limited time because the owner does not want him to get fleas - these are easily treated, most pet owners just obtain drops from the vet and the flea problem is solved.
