There's Still Time to Help "Tony the Tiger!"

From: Jeff
Sent on: Wednesday, April 16, 2014 9:22 AM

Dear All,

"Tony," a 10-year-old Siberian tiger, as you might have read in previous emails, has languished for more than a decade at a truck stop near Lafayette, living in a small barren cage, used as an attraction to sell more gasoline. A bill introduced at our State Capitol would allow "Tony" to remain at this location indefinitely.  We are asking the 169 members of this volunteer support group to join our efforts in defeating this bill.  One of our hard-working supporters, Nina, has put together an email that explains how you can reach each of our state senators with our message to vote against this bill:

 

Dear Senators,

We urge you to vote No on SB 250.  Tony the Tiger needs to be relocated to a big cat sanctuary to live out his life in peace.  Michael Sandlin should not be exempted from animal welfare protection.

 

"Michael Sandlin (the owner) has exploited tigers for over 20 years: buying, breeding, selling, and exhibiting tigers in poor conditions for his own profit. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has cited Sandlin’s truck stop in the past for unsanitary feeding practices; mishandling tigers; and failure to provide veterinary care, shelter from inclement weather, clean drinking water, and knowledgeable employees to care for the tigers. In 2003, Sandlin’s animal welfare violations sparked public outcry, and three tigers were removed. The USDA allowed Sandlin to keep one tiger: Tony. He has been alone ever since.  Therefore, please vote AGAINST SB 250.

Sincerely,

Nita Hemeter
