‘Tony The Tiger’ Tiger Truck Stop Bill Advances To Final Stage In Louisiana Legislature

facebook

Looks like “Tony The Tiger” at Tiger Truck Stop just outside of Baton Rouge is going to stay put. The Louisiana House committee agreed Wednesday the owner of Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete should be able to keep his Bengal tiger as a roadside attraction on I-10.

From nola.com -

“The committee devoted more than an hour of debate to mull issues like the legal merit of making an exception for Tony’s owner, the conditions inside his cage, the risk of transporting him and the tiger’s love life. 

The legislation in question, which has received national attention because of the involvement of animal rights groups, now moves to final passage in the House for the last legislative hurdle before going to Gov. Bobby Jindal’s desk to become law. The House Natural Resources and Environment Committee voted 10-6 to advance it.”

What’s YOUR opinion? Should Tony the tiger stay at Tiger Stop?
