ZOO WARS~One More Time~Just Because it Brings Me So Much Joy!!!!-Tony the Tiger will Be Staying Home!!!
Much thanks to everyone who helped with this long battle against Carole Baskin and her Animal Rights Extremists friends. Now for the next battle for all the money that Baskin collected ‘under the color of rescue’ -SCAMMING for donations- to bring Tony the Tiger to BCR now confirmed-will never happen as if it ever would -NOT!!!
That money was intended for Tony and considering that Baskin started the problem-she needs to send that money to Michael Sandlin. I am actually hoping that he sues her, ALDF, PETA and all those “F” is for FAKE rescues that were involved for AETA and RICO!!! PETA in there last ditch effort with pictures from ‘someplace else’; ALL the lies and destruction to the Truck Stop’s reputation…Now these groups are vowing to challenge the governor of Louisiana-REALLY?!? Now that’s funny-They think they are so above the law against both the House, the Senate and Governor Jindal…Now that’s funny-And at the risk of repeating myself-You just can’t make this SHIT up!!! Mob-Mentality…What a Hoot-Maybe they will piss off enough lawmakers and the governor enough to reverse their discriminatory law and once again allow Private Exotic Ownership of primates and big cats once again after realizing they bought into a line of crap about the animals and their owners!!!-HA!
My comment and you should add yours-just follow the link below:
“Get a grip ALDF-Lawmakers and the governor can make changes to their laws as they see fit including reversing the entire bill and once again ALLOW Private Exotic Animal Ownership-Guess what, they can do that too!!! I hope Mr. Michael S. Sandlin files suit for AETA, RICO and the interference with the normal business and reputation of the truck stop…All money collected for Tony should immediately be sent to Mr. Sandlin for all the grief, aggravation and expense you have already cost this man-YOU LOOSE -Here’s an idea for ya Stephen Wells, why don’t you go crawl back under your rock that you came from.”
Jindal signs bill grandfathering truck stop tiger; group vows challenge
Gov. Bobby Jindal has signed Senate Bill 250 into law grandfathering Tiger Truck Stop owner Michael Sandlin’s permit to keep a 550-pound Siberian-Bengal tiger caged there as a road-side curiosity. But an animal-rights group that successfully fought a series of court battles with Sandlin forcing the state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to enforce a 2006 law barring private ownership of exotic large cats is vowing to challenge Jindal’s John Hancock in court.
“Based on the fact this new law violates the Louisiana Constitution, we’ll be filing a lawsuit early next week,” says Megan Backus, media relations manager for the Animal Legal Defense Fund.
The bill allowing Sandlin to keep “Tony” in the cage at his Grosse Tete truck stop squeaked through the Legislature this year.
The ALDF released a press release decrying Jindal’s signing of the bill:
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has signed “SB 250”— a bill exempting the owner of Tony the Tiger from existing Louisiana law that prohibits private possession of dangerous and exotic large cats. Michael Sandlin, the owner of the Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete, LA, pushed for this controversial bill after several Louisiana courts rejected his permit to keep a 14 year-old Siberian-Bengal tiger named Tony caged as a gimmick in a gas station parking lot. This bill grants preferential treatment to one individual and has outraged Louisiana residents concerned with public safety and drawn criticism from animal welfare advocates across the nation.
In a unanimous 2012 decision by the Louisiana Court of Appeal, the Animal Legal Defense Fund won a three-year lawsuit against the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries for improperly issuing Mr. Sandlin a permit in violation of the big exotic cats ban. Last fall, the Louisiana Supreme Court let that decision stand. Governor Jindal’s signing of SB 250 now overturns those legal victories by undermining the settled rulings of Louisiana courts. The Animal Legal Defense Fund believes this law is unconstitutional and immediately plans to challenge its validity.
SB 250 was rushed through a Louisiana Senate committee with very little notice and failed to pass the Senate on its first attempt. After ultimately making it out of the Senate by a single vote, it finally passed out of the Louisiana House on the last day of the legislative session and was sent to the Governor’s desk––over the strong objections of veterinarians, animal advocates, and other lawmakers, including former Louisiana Rep. Warren Triche, who sponsored the law banning private parties from keeping large cats like Tony. That 2006 law was passed unanimously by the Louisiana legislature and was drafted by Rep. Triche specifically with Tony’s plight in mind.
“This law circumvents the three-tiered court system, including the Louisiana Court of Appeal, for the benefit of one individual,” said Rep. Warren Triche. “It is my understanding the Louisiana Constitution does not allow an individual to seek special favors to undo what the courts have already decided.”
“Governor Jindal has just signed a bill into law that violates his own state constitution. Mr. Sandlin repeatedly lost in the courts so he found a way to make his own one-man law,” said Stephen Wells, executive director of the Animal Legal Defense Fund. “We will not let Tony suffer because of this back-door sidestepping of the legal system.”
What do they care about the money they waste on filing suits?!? All donated and you better believe they receive a salary!!!
