A Grosse Tete gas station that has a Tony, a live tiger, as an attraction is headed to the state supreme court.

According to reports, a state district court and an appeals court said mistakes were made in the case.

Back in April, a three-judge panel said the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries can't give Tony's owner, Michael Sandlin, another permit for the tiger.

But in a report, Sandlin's lawyer said having the tiger is legal, and there's a lot at stake, including his business, if Tony is taken away.

No word on when the case will be heard.
