Ban ownership of big cats
The Louisiana House gave final legislative passage Friday to a bill that would allow a Grosse Tete truck stop to keep its tiger. Veto the bill and send Tony to reputable sanctuary.
At issue in SB250 is whether a licensed owner, who obtained an exotic animal legally and has been in continuous possession and ownership since Aug. 15, 2006, should be exempted from state law that bans anyone other than colleges, sanctuaries, zoos, wildlife research centers and scientific organizations from possessing big exotic cats. The legislation would allow Tiger Truck Stop at the Grosse Tete exit off Interstate 10 to keep its Siberian-Bengal tiger named Tony.
