The Elephant in the Living Room

Caught this on BR, since I was very interested about that exotic animal escape incident in Ohio last year. This documentary focuses on those types of nuts and really shows that side of people that have little clue about how dangerous and expensive these wild animals are to care for. It's pretty f--ing cool to have baby lions as pets though!
I rarely check out special features anymore but these stories were so outrageous, I watched all the extra footage... amazing stuff.

Anyone know of other films or TV shows on this subject?

If you get the BRD, don't ignore the special features. Especially...
Spoiler:
The filmmaker getting some rare disease form one of the exotic animals.


Hoping someone makes a documentary about last year's incident in Ohio.

Are there really wild lions out there? That would be amazing.

According to the movie... there are hundreds of lions in Ohio alone.
More tigers in Texas than in the wild in India.
Though these are all "captive" there are a startling number that get out.
This film follow one particular Ohio state worker who tried to help owners before it gets to the point where the animals get out.
