Tiger Enthusiast, Joe Exotic, to Build New Pool for Tony the Truck Stop Tiger.
Gross Tete, LA (NBC33) - August 22, 2013 -- He's a tiger advocate, a country singer and a soon to be reality tv star - Joe Exotic visited the Tiger Truck Stop today to rally in support of keeping Tony the Tiger in his home. Along with the United States Zoological Association, Exotic is constructing a brand new pool for Tony at the truck stop. He feels very strongly about Tony's fight and hopes he gets to stay at the Tiger Truck Stop.
"I have many many tigers of my own in Oklahoma," stated Exotic. "If they were to move this tiger, I think it would be more detrimental to the tiger's depression and being moved at the age that he's at."
This is Joe Exotic's third visit to the truck stop. Yesterday, they had a huge turn out for his visit, and the petition keep Tony home is constantly growing.
Tony has never been abused, neglected or mistreated. He is deeply loved by his Christian businessman father and a second generation of visitors now comes to Tiger Truck Stop to see him. PETA and its legal arm, ADLF have agendas of their own that do not involve being good stewards over God's creation. Tony has a home that is a lot nicer than where a lot of children in Baton Rouge live -- 3300 square feet, heated, air conditioned and a pool. I wish the children of Brookstown had it as good.
No matter how good, how large, how luxurious Tony's enclosure is, the animal rights terrorists will always complain. It is how they make their money and get their publicity. They don't mess with Mike at LSU because there is plenty behind him. But with Michael, they think they can wear him down because he is an individual. A PeTA representative once called Louisiana people INBRED when they started a fight in parish court. That is what they think of us and why they must be deactivated.
Joe Exotic and the USZA have stepped up yet once again to assist those exotic animals and exotic animals owners who are being bullied by certain individuals and organizations. You can help as well. Make your donations here.
