Tony the Truck Stop Tiger is Headed for a Better Life

Posted on the 10 May 2011 by Thevault @The_Vault

Tony the Truck Stop Tiger is headed for a better lifeA month ago we reported that Kristin Bauer had joined the fight to give a better life to Tony, a 10-year-old Siberian-Bengal tiger, who spends his lonely days as an attraction at a Louisiana truck stop.

After a lawsuit filed by The Animal Legal Defense Fund and more than 30,000 signatures were collected on the online petition, a judge in East Baton Rouge District Court granted the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s (ALDF) request for a permanent injunction against the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, preventing the Department from renewing the annual permit that allows Michael Sandlin, owner of Grosse Tete’s Tiger Truck Stop, to display Tony.
Tony is scheduled to be moved from his current home at a truck stop to a new location by the end of the year.

Victory!
