Tiger, pet or wild animal?

A domesticated or tame animal that is kept as a companion and cared for affectionatley

This is the definition of a Pet. Tony has been described as a "much loved" Family Pet by the Sandlin family. If Tony is so loved by his owners, why is he given so little care and attention.

Has Michael Sandlin ever done any kind of research into the care of Big Cats.

Does Mr Sandlin really care about Tony or is he just interested in 'winning'. The one who suffers with the passing of time taken for these Court cases of course is Tony, he could be retiring now, but Mr Sandlin wants to get as much out of Tony and Tigers as he can.

But of course, Tony is a much loved pet!

Even if raised in captivity, a tiger still has the genetics and the physical strength of a tiger. At any moment, its latent savagery can be awakened by whatever trigger. And then, Heaven help any and all in its path!

Private ownership of these creatures should either be banned, or be very strictly regulated. Just as a gun is never a toy, a great cat is never a pet.

Thank goodness somebody has some sense (Vivek).

A lady Zookeeper was killed this week by a Tiger in England, big cats are NOT man's best friend.

The Tiger at Tiger Truck Stop has been used soley in order to make money and bring more custom to their sleazy little place.

The owners of Tony do not even bother with straw or bedding which means Tony spends the majority of his sad life of hard concrete. The grass area you see in pictures of the Enclosure is usually out of bounds to Tony.

Exploitation of wild animals or as Michael Sandlin likes to call them "exotic animals" is terrible and I wish it would all stop now.
