Experts estimate that there are more tigers in private captivity in the USA than there are roaming wild in the world.
24 of them live in Dennis H’s backyard.
A feature documentary about a man named Dennis Hill who has been keeping, breeding, and selling tigers from his backyard in Flat Rock, Indiana for over fifteen years. The Tiger Next Door follows him – exploring his motives, his past, and the curious, ethically-murky world he’s created in his backyard. At the same time, the film ranges far beyond Hill’s animal compound, illuminating the connection between breeders like Hill, and the near-epidemic of wild animal keeping in the United States.
