Life in Tiger Farms 2011
In this dispatch from the field, correspondent Adam Yamaguchi tapes his own raw reaction to seeing first-hand a massive tiger farm in China where over 1,500 animals are being held — likely until they die, when their parts are far more valuable.
For the episode “Tiger Farms,” Yamaguchi goes undercover to investigate China’s lucrative black market for tigers and tiger parts, including the business of Asian zoos and breeding centers.
