Sunday Selfie #TinyTigers4Tony

My selfie today is in support of Tony, a Siberian-Bengal tiger who has endured more than ten years of misery at the Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete, Louisiana. 

He is living at an isolated gas station parking lot. Can you imagine the stench of fuel and the drone of those diesel engines? This is horrible and so very harmful to an animal with such sensitive hearing and an acute sense of smell. 

The Animal Legal Defense Fund has been fighting for Tony for seven years, and are now waiting for a court decision that could finally grant Tony his freedom to be relocated to a reputable sanctuary, where he can live out the rest of his life getting the veterinary care and environment he deserves. 

Please help by simply printing out the “Free Tony” sign and snapping a photo of your tiny tiger with the sign. Then you can post it on social media with the hashtag #TinyTigers4Tony to help raise awareness of Tony's plight. Come on, Tiny Tigers, let's help our dear furriend!
Tiny Tigers for Tony
 


The Sunday Selfies Blog Hop is sponsored by our lovely friends The Cat on My Head 

We are thinking of all our dear furriends and their people in the path of Irma. Please stay safe 💚🐾

Heck I never knew this sort of thing was still happening! I hope the judge rules for humanity and Tony's sake rather than stupidities...
A lovely selfie for a very worthy cause, Athena.

That's awful! I hope the court makes the right decision so Tony can live out his years in a sanctuary.

Poor Tony. I hope the court makes the right decision to free Tony and let him live out he's retirement in a proper sanctuary.
