Victory in Animal Legal Defense Fund’s Lawsuit to Free Tony the Truck Stop TigerThis morning, a judge in East Baton Rouge District Court granted the  Animal Legal Defense Fund’s (ALDF) request for a permanent injunction  against the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, preventing  the Department from renewing the annual permit that allows Michael  Sandlin, owner of Grosse Tete’s Tiger Truck Stop, to display Tony, a ten-year-old Siberian-Bengal tiger.  When the current permit expires in December 2011, Sandlin will no  longer be able to keep Tony confined as a roadside exhibit at the truck  stop where he has languished for over a decade. 
The Animal Legal Defense Fund will work to find the best possible home  for Tony in a reputable sanctuary where he can live out his days in a  peaceful, natural environment.
