I don't know anything about this other than it was emailed to me and so I thought I'd crosspost.   I hope that something can be done for him  :(
Please consider the harder to home cats in rescue.

They've got way over their target number of signatures, I just wonder if these petitions actually have any effect.
You can't change the world by rescuing one cat, but for that one cat you are changing its world.

I signed it yesterday after getting an email from care2

I'm sure I signed one for the same tiger about 2 years ago, so sounds like nothing happened. For a supposedly modern country, America has a long way to go where animal welfare is concerned. I'm certain it wouldn't be allowed here.

I believe I am not interested to know whether Vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn't. To know that the results are profitable to the race would not remove my hostility to it.  Mark Twain

Save Tony the Tiger

Tony the Tiger has lived for 10 years in a chain link and concrete enclosure
at a truck stop in Louisiana.

But Tony isn't living, he's suffering.

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/460/714/941/?z00m=19918497


At the truck stop, Tony is subjected to constant harassment, noise, flood
lights, and exhaust fumes in a space no bigger than a couple parking spots.

Tony's owner is allowed to keep Tony in such inhumane conditions because the
Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) gave him a permit to
do so. Tony serves as a truck stop attraction, and his only protection is a
cage and a sign asking people not to throw things at him.

Help free Tony.

Tell the LDWF not to renew the permit that keeps him at the truck stop. ยป
