sadness in his eyes

Its a shame I've been proved correct, but I knew that a Tiger can never be a Pet.

A pet does not kill its keeper, but a wild animal will if it is given the chance.

I always knew that Tony was being kept at the Tiger Truck Stop just to attract more customers.

Tony has been exploited for over 10 years and the owner would like Tony to end his life at the Truck Stop, to never experience a 'normal' life for a Tiger.

Should people Boycott the Tiger Truck Stop?
Go around to the back of the Truck Stop and decide for yourself.

I think that bedding was never provided for Tony because they did not think about the Tiger being confortable. As long as Tony was there drawing the Customers to The Truck Stop thats all that matters.

I've noticed that Tony's new Pool is often left without any water. Why is this - considering there is a hose which is kept for cleaning the Enclosure, could'nt this be used to fill up the Pool?

Poor Tony - I love you.

Mr M Sandlin you are an oaf and fat.

Tony, the moment I first saw your picture in a Newspaper article it broke my heart.

How could someone do this to an animal I asked myself?

Poor old Tony, who really cares about you.

Do the owners of this wild animal kept in a cage care about him or winning court case, I know the answer and so does Mr Michael Sandlin.

It broke my heart the first time I saw a picture of a Tiger kept just to attract customers at the back of a Truck Stop, all day all night. How cruel can you get?

Hey Tony, I still love you and I want you to be happy - that's all I want.

Peace and Love

Mr Sandlin will never cease his 'fight' to keep Tony at the rear of his Gas Station.

To Mr Sandlin Tony belongs to him, period.

There is no thought to wether Tony is truly happy, I doubt this poor animal can be - he must live on hard rough Concrete, he has nothing to do except stare at the wire fences which have held him for more than 11 years.

The Sandlin family cannot even be bothered to refill the Pool provided for Tony in the hot Louisiana Summer. Mr Sandlin says "Tony likes the air con inside his den in the hot weather". Tony has little choice, it is either here he must sleep or in the baking hot Enclosure.

The grass area is only available to Tony for a limited time as the owner is worried he will get fleas, most pet owners solve this problem with drops. Tony has to suffer day after day, night after night for the amusement and curiosity of a few people.

Shame on you Grosse Tete and Ibberville Council for letting this cruelty go on for so long.

I would be sad if I had to spend my whole entire life on the forecourt of a Gas Station

Do the Sandlin family ever think about what a Tiger would really want to be doing, do they honestly think he is "happy" sitting in a cage staring at wire 24 hours a day, 365 days a year?
