Truck stop tiger hearings Thursday & Monday

Truck stop tiger hearings Thursday, Monday

Posted: May 03, 2012 6:22 AM EDT  Updated: May 03, 2012 6:22 AM EDT
An animal rights group says a state district judge has scheduled a hearing Thursday on its lawsuit demanding he order the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to remove an 11-year-old tiger from a truck stop in Grosse Tete.
The Animal Legal Defense Fund sued last month, saying the department has refused to confiscate the animal from Tiger Truck Stop Inc. and its owner, Michael Sandlin.
It wants Judge R. Michael Caldwell to order local law enforcement agents to take that step.
The group also has been asked to be made a party to Sandlin's lawsuit challenging Louisiana's ban on private ownership of big cats.
It says Judge Janice Clark has scheduled a hearing Monday on that question.
