The Tiger Next Door is the full 86 miute version of the Animal Planet broadcast. Dennis Hill has been breeding and selling tigers from his backyard in Flat Rock, Indiana for over 15 years. Tigers are both an occupation and an obsession for Hill - he claims to know exactly what his animals are thinking by the look in their eyes. But now, after a surprise government inspection, he's lost his license to keep exotic animals, and the state is threatening to shut him down. The Tiger Next Door tracks Hill over the months that follow as he fights to keep the animals he claims to love. It also uncovers the intricate web of commerce and government laxity that keep breeders like Hill in business. What finally becomes exposed is the widespread attitude that humans are indeed lords of the animal kingdom.
