but my thing is this, if he wants to own a tiger, why not let the tiger out the cage or have some sort of free land that the tiger can run around in when the station isnt open. I'm suprised that the tiger has even lived this long in a cage. (I still agree that the markeing gimick is wrong on so many levels)

First off, its a tiger. an animal. You dont treat animals like humans.
Secondly, he has been allowed to have it. Its a tiger. IT would be out tearing up animals if it was free. Its not like it would be living peacefully with neighboring animals. Thirdly, I dont understand why having MORE freedoms to do things is necessarily bad. All this "only in the South" talk leads me to believe that the North is really strict and regulated to the point that you arent really free to do much of anything. Not to mention that while people are obsessing over this tiger, millions of illegally acquired exotic pets are being caged nationwide. Go cry over those or something.

It shouldn't have never been here in the 1st place. If it was where it was supposed to be you wouldn't have that problem.

With all the problems there are in Louisiana and this is what you're upset about? People have many different kinds of pets. Some are kept in cages. If they are cared for... what's your beef?

So the guy draws a crowd with it. So do zoos.

Maybe it should be rephrased "only in the South are people okay with this".

A zoo is different than some truck stop roadside attraction, but you seem to prove my point.

He looks like a pretty content, well-fed tiger to me.

I agree with the poster who said we have more important things to worry about in Louisiana than this stupid tiger.

In case you hadn't noticed, our marshes are currently being killed by toxic oil (all thank you notes should be directed to BP). Just that one problem alone out of many makes this tiger truck stop officially the least of my worries. He doesn't know how to be a wild tiger. He wouldn't last a week in a natural tiger habitat.

Excuses are like buttholes. Everybody has one.

To defend the idiot tiger owner sure reveals a lot about your charachter.

You can tell much about a human by the way they treat animals.

Sorry for being more concerned with all of the animals currently being killed and maimed by BP's monumental screw up. Animals in our wetlands are dying for nothing. From what I have seen, this tiger appears relatively healthy and content.
