- BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A Baton Rouge appeals court has threw out a judge's ruling that barred state officials from issuing any new permits to an Iberville Parish truck stop to keep a 550-pound tiger on display.
Caldwell's ruling in May came after the Animal Legal Defense Fund sued the state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to have the tiger removed from the Interstate 10 truck stop.
Only attorneys for the Animal Legal Defense Fund and the state took part in the first hearing.
