Recent news of a Connecticut woman brutally attacked by her neighbor's 200 pound "pet" chimpanzee is only the latest case of a captive wild animal gone "bad." Rolling River Films is pleased to announce the WORLD PREMIERE of The Tiger Next Door –a feature documentary that deals head-on with the issue of captive-bred wild animals kept by private individuals.
The Tiger Next Door tells the startling story of one man has been breeding and selling tigers from his backyard for over 15 years. His great dream is to breed a stripeless white tiger – but at what cost to the animals, and at what risk to the community?
