This tiger has no voice - so please give this poor animal your voice.

The tiger is in a tiny cage in Greece.  

Sign this petition here with Care2.com

In Rhodes in Greece, the Esperos Village Hotel is keeping a tiger in inhumane conditions.

All our signatures are needed to urge the hotel to release the tiger to a sanctuary now.   

The hotel owns thousands of acres of land but this tiger is in a tiny cage.  The only source of shade is a metal container - and that can get boiling hot in the summer heat.  

The tiger is supposed to be an attraction for its guests - but visitors often throw stones and rocks on top of the netting covering the tiger's enclosures. 

The tiger needs to go to a sanctuary that can offer a more natural home and veterinary care.   

Sign the petition urging the Esperos Village Hotel to release its tiger to a sanctuary.

    Hi Soraya, I also went on holiday at esperos village hotel in aug 2019. Just before i was to leave for Greece, i read your message about the tiger. I was very shocked and determined to investigate. I learned several things. I spoke to someone who works in the hotel and who says that the other tiger was bitten by the tiger that is still there, and died from the effects of the inflammation that was not taken care of correctly. The racoon was no longer present. I have been in contact with the Greek government through a letter. The bottom line is that they won?t let the tiger go, because the Greek government says they are the owner of the tiger and that everything is legal. I work with animals every day, so I know something about it. But the animals that live there especially the tiger don?t get the proper care that they need. If you want to know more please contact me. I saw your message too late, because I assumed that you wouldn?t respond. What I know further is that we need someone with more power, otherwise we can?t save the tiger. Greeting Mrs. Loos

    I'm glad to see these animals are finally getting noticed. Summer 2017 I went here on vacation and found these abandoned animals which really made me cry. When I was there this "zoo" contained 2 tigers and 1 raccoon (heavily starved). I immidiately contacted Panhellenic Animal Welfare and Environment Federation which is located on Rhodos. They went there and took a look, but told the animals are too old to move.. they are keep a close look on the health of these animals. Maybe you can contact Panhellenic Animal Welfare and Environment Federation so you are all on the same page. My contact person is Olga. If there is anything I can do please let me know.
