There’s Something Truly Unique About This Mom & Pop Truck Stop in Louisiana

While there are lots of unique truck stops in Louisiana, the Tiger Mart in Grosse Tete might just take the cake. Of course there are lots of places that proclaim the tiger as their mascot in this area in honor of the great LSU Tigers, but Tiger Mart took it to a whole other level – by keeping their own tigers on the property!

What do you think of this truck stop that keeps a live tiger? Do you think it’s wrong to keep a tiger near the highway like this? Or do you think the owner does a good job of taking care of him? Have you ever visited before? Let us know what you think in the comments below! We love to hear your feedback!
