The Elephant In The Living Room
Thousands of Americans across the nation are raising the most dangerous animals in the world as common household pets. As this national controversy has been in debate since the late 1970s there is still no concrete law for the United States as a whole. How comfortable are you with your neighbor having an African Lion as a pet?
Director, Michael Webber chronicles the extraordinary story of two men at the heart of the issue-Tim Harrison, an Ohio police officer whose friend was killed by an exotic pet; and Terry Brumfield, a big-hearted man who struggles to raise two African lions that he loves like his own family.
In the first of many unexpected twists, the lives of these two men collide when Terry’s male lion escapes its pen and is found attacking cars on a nearby highway. Winner of 5 Best Documentary Awards, the film courageously exposes the shocking reality behind the multi-billion dollar exotic pet industry with stunning photography, inspiring storytelling and unprecedented access into a world rarely seen, right in our own backyard.
