Description

Please join us as we raise awareness and support for Tony, a 12 year old tiger used as a roadside attraction at a truck stop in Louisiana, USA. Tony's petition recently reached 20,000 signatures on Sunday September 30, 2012 which coincidentally was International Tiger Day.  Petition link: http://www.change.org/petitions/ldwf-ensure-tony-the-tiger-is-released-to-a-reputable-sanctuary

While we still wait for a decision from Tony’s August 6th hearing, please take action for him and tigers, both captive and wild, at the links below.

Tigers are magnificent majestic big cats who deserve our utmost respect, protection and advocacy. Sadly there are only an estimated 3,200 of Tony’s “cousins” remaining in the wild,  a decline of 95% since the turn of the century. Poaching, human-tiger conflict, loss of habitat and prey are the main threats to tigers. Learn more about wild tigers and how we can help support efforts to save them:

Captive U.S. Tigers


Tony is just one of the estimated 5,000 or more privately owned tigers in the United States and he has definitely raised awareness to this serious issue. Please continue to support Tony and take action for captive U.S. tigers:
