Free Tony The Tiger

BATON ROUGE, La. — This week the State of Louisiana Court of Appeal will hear arguments in the case of the Tiger Truck Stop in Baton Rouge.

Owner Michael Sandlin is fighting to keep a live Bengal tiger named Tony in a cage at the truck stop.

The animal legal defense fund won a ruling against the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries for unlawfully issuing Sandlin a permit to keep the tiger.

In 2011, Judge Michael Caldwell ordered wildlife and fisheries to revoke the permit.

The court will take up Sandlin’s appeal on Tuesday.

1. Background

The National Park Service (NPS) has alarmingly decided to massacre deer at Rock Creek Park in Washington, D.C. The animals will be gunned down, bow-hunted, or cruelly netted and then killed up close with a captive-bolt gun. Hunted animals often do not die outright but disappear only to die slowly from wounds, extreme stress, or injuries sustained during attacks by other animals. Those who are netted are subjected to a terrifying ordeal—they thrash frantically, often harming themselves, and are handled roughly before eventually being killed. The NPS claims that the deer at Rock Creek Park are overpopulated and that killing them will protect plant life—yet the agency’s own data show that deer numbers have gone virtually unchanged in the past 10 years!
