Battle ongoing over Tony the Tiger

| 4/6/2012

Yet another lawsuit was filed in Louisiana on Thursday, April 6, in the ongoing legal battle over “Tony the Tiger.” Tony is a Siberian-Bengal tiger that’s been on display in a cage at the Tiger Truck Stop off Interstate 10 near Baton Rouge for years.

On Thursday, an animal rights group filed suit hoping to get Tony moved to wildlife refuge.

In November, a judge ordered that the truck stop owner’s permit to keep the tiger be revoked, but another judge issued a temporary order barring the state from moving the animal.
