Today at Big Cat Rescue Nov 7


Now more pertinent than ever after the tragic events in Zanesville, Ohio last month where an owner/breeder released 48 captive bred exotic animals including tigers, lions, leopards, bears, wolves and monkeys before taking his own life –giving the animals only a few hours of terrifying freedom before being shot to death.  Please spread the word about this important film.

THE TIGER NEXT DOOR tells the story of one man named Dennis Hill who has been breeding and selling tigers from his home in Flat Rock, Indiana for 15 years.  When the film begins Hill has 24 tigers, 3 bears, 6

leopards, and a cougar living in his backyard compound. But now, after a surprise government inspection, he’s lost the license that allowed him to keep exotic animals, and the state of Indiana is threatening to shut him down. He has just five days to find alternate homes for all but three of his brood and to bring his facilities up to code – or else lose what he considers to be his life’s work. Hill’s small town drama is told against the backdrop of a shocking array of news stories of tiger situations gone bad around the country. Stories that reveal a near epidemic of wild animal keeping, and raise the question: what do we want our relationship with wild animals to be in the 21st century, as the wild disappears?
