May 28, 2014:

Despite brilliant legal testimony from ALDF’s Carter Dillard and Chris Green on behalf of Tony, and Pat Craig of The Wild Animal Sanctuary who  provided his expertise backed with 34 years of experience with rescuing big cats, the Louisiana House Natural Resources and Environment Committee passed SB 250, Senator Rick Ward’s bill to “exempt certain persons from the requirements of the big exotic cats rules” (specifically to allow Michael Sandlin to keep Tony at Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete Louisiana.) The final vote was 10 YES to 6 NO. The bill now moves to the House and is scheduled for floor debate on May 30, 2014.
