From The Organic View:

Some people choose animals as companions. Then, there are others that choose to exploit, abuse and profit from their misery. Such is the case with a 10 year old Siberian-Bengal tiger named Tony. He has spent every day and night of the last decade at the Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete, Louisiana.

It’s no life for a tiger, or any other animal. On April 11, 2011, Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) filed a lawsuit against the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and its secretary Robert Barham, arguing that he violated state law in granting a permit allowing Michael Sandlin to continue to exhibit Tony at the Tiger Truck Stop. This permit, that allows Tony to languish in a roadside cage, violates state law.  The case has reached international attention as people are aghast that such cruelty is tolerated in the United States.
