ALDF Saves Tony

The ALDF headed to court yesterday and saved a Siberian-Bengal tiger from a truck stop in Louisiana.

Tony the Truck Stop Tiger, a 10-year-old Siberian-Bengal tiger who spends his life caged at the Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete, La., will be freed, thanks to the Animal Legal Defense Fund and more than 27,000 people who have signed a petition to move Tony to a humane big-cat sanctuary. After filing a lawsuit against the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries in mid-April, ALDF went to court yesterday to fight for Tony’s freedom. According to ALDF’s Twitter feed, the court announced this morning that the owner of Tiger Truck Stop will not be able to renew his permit allowing Tony to live at the truck stop. This is a victory for Tony, the ALDF, and all who supported the effort.
