EYE OF THE TIGER

EYE OF THE TIGER

Note: This article is from The Independent Weekly an alternative weekly newspaper of Lafayette, Louisiana.

Readers of The Independent Weekly may recall our Feb. 4 coverstory on the controversy surrounding the Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete. That’s where owner Mike Sandlin keeps his “pet,” Tony, a 600-pound, 9-year-old Bengal-Siberian tiger in a cage about the size of the back end of an 18-wheeler. Always the proud scorn of animal rights activists, Sandlin recently introduced a new souvenir T-shirt. The Hanes cotton T costs $10 and features a large picture of Tony licking his chops above the slogan, “Animal Rights Activists taste like chicken.” Available only at the Tiger Truck Stop. — NS
