Take whatever action you can to address this horrible situation. This poor tiger is stuck in a cage at a truck stop in Grosse Tete. The station owner refuses to relinquish him the rescue group that has offered to take him so that he can live out his life in a more humane manner.

Thank you.

okay one can only hope that the winds from alex break the cage and lets him loose . I think some people are stupid , let us put the gas station owner behind bars for animal cruelty and see how he likes it. The only reason he is keeping the tiger is for the money . We all know it and it is a draw . This makes me sick .

And then the tiger can either be hit by a car, shot by a human or attack other animals and be euthanized.

FABULOUS idea ya have there.

Can I ask what exactly is the purpose of keeping a tiger at a truck stop?? How does having a tiger in a cage attract customers? If ppl need service, they are going to stop at a truck stop nearest to them, so the tiger cruelty is totally unnecessary(i.e. There is no excuse for what the owner is doing to this tiger.)

Somebody should start a Face Book page to boycott the truck stop......if I knew more about what was going on, I'd do it.
The page could go viral in no time.

I already sent an email to the address listed in the video, and sent a link to Cats Cause, waiting to hear back from the person who made the vid.

It is a marketing gimmick to get LSU fans to stop and look at the Tiger.

If that is legal it should be legal to drag the owner out back and beat the snot out of him.
