Thank you for this article - we must continue to raise awareness to the issue of privately owned tigers in America. Let us not forgot the 17 year old tiger named Tony who has been captive for all those 17 years at a truck stop in Louisiana. I think of him as the "ambassador" for captive tigers - Tony has definitely put "a face" and a name to this issue, and people all over the world have come to know him, his story and the U.S. captive tiger crisis. The Animal Legal Defense Fund continues to fight for Tony's release to a reputable big cat sanctuary.
