Does Louisiana wildlife conservation include truck stop tigers?

This truly breaks my heart…. How can anyone working for wildlife conservation actually think that it’s a good idea to have a tiger as a roadside attraction? We’re in the 21st century people…. It’s time for the Louisiana Dept. of Wildlife to finally do their job for once. There is much for the great state of Louisiana to offer to visitors, but this unfortunately is making the whole state look bad. Sandlin can go on cruises and buy new vehicles, but he begs for money to buy toys for Tony? What is wrong with this picture? And then there is the constant noise and air pollution, and being taunted by the truck stop visitors who have access to Tony’s cage night and day. My parents just stopped by to see him in November and there were children throwing rocks at him! There’s no supervision of Tony’s cage. He’s left to the whim of the people visiting there.

I’m hoping that Tony doesn’t end up like this former resident of the same cage he lives in now…. Stuffed and on display over a salad bar in the Tiger Truck Stop restaurant.
