<div class="quote-block">Why is June 14 a critical day in the plight of Tony the Truckstop Tiger? Its because thats the day that a Louisiana court will get to decide if Tony needs to spend another six months penned up in his cage outside of the Tiger Truck Stop or if he can begin his new life of freedom earlier than December. You may recall the plight of Tony. Hes spent years isolated and caged outside of a truck stop, inhaling fumes and suffering at the hands of tourists and locals.</div>

It's sad that people clearly don't possess common sense when it comes to having captive animals. Common sense dictates a tiger should be in the wild. I hope the change goes through and he is allowed free.

I don't have problems with wildlife sanctuary/rescue type "zoos" that provide the animals with a great habitat and care, and if they are trained then they are trained humanely (depending on the domestication of the animal, I see it no different from training a cat or dog) unlike many veg*ns who don't like any zoo type places or animals being trained, but this tiger is clearly being exploited without being cared for. I find it awful as a human to be stuck near a road with smoggy cars and disgusting tourists all day, I can't imagine how this tiger feels, who deserves a more natural, larger habitat. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I agree that zoos are not always the horrible places people make them out to be. That is often the case, but not always. And I also agree this poor guy needs to be freed, because in his case, this IS a horrible place to be.
