    BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A state judge in Baton Rouge has heard a new round of arguments on whether a truck stop can keep a live tiger on display as it has done for over a decade.
    The Animal Legal Defense Fund had already won a ruling that said the state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries could not issue a permit allowing the Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete, La., to continue exhibiting a live tiger as a roadside attraction.
    The case was before state District Judge Mike Caldwell again on Wednesday. Caldwell was expected to rule in the afternoon.
    Wildlife officials say Tony is the last privately-owned big, exotic cat in the state. The defense fund wants the tiger moved to a more natural setting to live out its life.
