Tony the truck stop tiger euthanized after 17 years as Grosse Tete attraction


Tony ? a 17 year-old Siberian Bengal tiger ? has died, after living his life as a Grosse Tete truck stop attraction at the center of a controversial legal battle over his ownership and life in Louisiana.

According to a statement from the Tiger Truck Stop website, Tony was euthanized Oct. 16 after exhibiting "typical*signs that death was imminent" to "prevent*Tony from*suffering." The statement says Tony will be "preserved through taxidermy" following an autopsy.

Tony had lived at the truck stop since January 2001, when the tiger was six months old.?
