Would you appreciate being taken from your home, never allowed to see your companions for your whole life, never seeing the familiar territory you grew up with?
short video about Tony at the Tiger Truck Stop...
SAVE OUR TIGER!!!! Animal activists from out of state
are trying to send our hand-raised, never in the wild, family member to a wild
game preserve somewhere.
They claim he is endangered here, BUT HE WILL BE THERE!!! Thousands
are spent on Tony every month at the Tiger truck Stop - The non-profit shelters
cannot afford to give tony the quality of food and care he receives
We have met
every regulation and request for the tiger's safety. In fact, more tiger cubs
have been born at our truck stop than in any zoo in the US! He is fed well, and
has our full attention. Will he be
just one of dozens of tigers fending for themselves at the shelter he is
suposed to go to???? STOP THIS!!
Our tiger, Tony, has never been away from the truck
stop or the loved ones who have raised him since he was a baby. Sign the
petition and write the truck stop to save our big cat!!!

true love! They have feelings just like us, maybe even more! Don't do things to
them which you wouldn't experience yourself! By killing the animals, you kill
the earth... by killing the earth, you kill yourself!

It is more than
cruel to take this beautiful creature away from people that have raised him and
loved him where he is safe. Why put him in the hands of possible danger when he
being properly cared for by people that he has known all of his life. Let him
ANOTHER DUMB DECISION BY
IDIOTS WHO DO EVERYTHING TO DESTROY ANIMALS HAPPINESS,LEAVE THIS ANIMAL WHERE
IT IS LOVED AND CARED FOR AS ITS NOT HURTING ANYONE AND THESE PEOPLE ARE CARING
FOR AND DOING RIGHT BY THE ANIMAL AND THE PEOPLE AROUND,STOP THIS HEARTLESS AND
INHUMAN ACTION OF TRYING TO REMOVE THE ANIMAL,ITS TIME INHUMANS GREW A HEART
AND WOKE UP TO THERE DISASTROUS AND INHUMANE DECISIONS.
animals belong in the wild, were they can live according to their needs and
above all, be free. However, I do realize that in some cases, an animal that
has been born and raised in captivity, can in fact be better of staying with
those who have cared for it, throughout its intire life. If Tony is cared for
according to his needs, and are given love and care, I cannot se why he
shouldn't stay where he is..
No doubt animals in
the wild are better off being free and where they would prefer to be, but I
don't think people see the difference between animals born into the wild and
those that were raised completely by hand. It would be more cruel to thrust the
poor guy into an unknown environment without his loved ones or any sense of
what to do. Perhaps if they slowly integrated his lifestyle into a wild one it
would not be as sad or risky, but all the same, he is better off with his
family. I don't think a person who has not ever been in contact with the animal
has a right to say otherwise - no, scratch that. They certainly have the right
to say so, but I don't think that an opinion of a party not involved or even
associated with the tiger should be able to decide the
