The Tiger Next Door

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.
