Tiger Truck Stop owner Michael Sandlin has asked the Louisiana Supreme Court to let him keep a 12-year-old Bengal-Siberian mix tiger named Tony. Sandlin’s permit to keep the Tiger was ruled invalid by the 1st Circuit Court of Appeal in April, due to the fact that Sandlin is not the animal’s legal owner.

Tigers have been on display at the truck stop in Grosse Tete, Louisiana since 1988. Tony and his 40-by-80-foot cage have been the focus of animal rights complaints at least since 1988.

Do you think a new permit should be issued to Tiger Truck Stop owner Michael Sandlin? Or, should the tiger be seized and sent to a reputable sanctuary?

  1. Tony the tiger should not be kept in such small confinements, especially ones that do not resemble his natural habitat. He is a wild animal and his living conditions are inhumane. Since he has been in captivity for so long, introduce him to a large cat sanctuary. Michael Sandlin’s does not deserve another permit and the tiger should be removed from his control. Do the humane and moral thing – free Tony!
