GROSS TETE, LA (NBC33) — 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 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.
