Judge: Truck Stop is No Place For Tiger(s)
Did Zainesville turn the tides at Grosse Tete? Tiger Truck Stop has long been known for its plentiful bathrooms, clean showers. Oh, and there's the actual Siberian-Bengal tiger they keep on the grounds. In the past, there have been many more striped snarlers. Turns out, after all these years a judge didn't like the idea of having exotics on the side of the highway so much, and yanked a state wildlife permit used by the highway hideaway's owner to keep the cat legally. The giant feline has been the subject of an ongoing court battle with the Animal Legal Defense Fund, which says that keeping a tiger in a cage at a rest stop is inhumane.
That might seem like an easy decision for a judge, but that permit allowed the owner to keep the tiger, as an appeals court eventually sided with the Truck Stop in August. That was all fine and grrreat in August, but the post-Zainesville Backyard Safari world revealled a new and very different ruling. Luckily, Time has this handy guide about how he can get a new tiger. But, could anything ever replace that cutey Tony?
