Exotic Animal Trade in the USA
Client : Animal Protection Institute, Sacramento, California.
Film : ’A Life Sentence’
Duration : 30 min
Launch : March 2006
Exotic animals such as tigers, lions, bears, wolves and large primates like chimpanzees are kept in bizarre private pet menageries and zoos in the USA despite recurring evidence that they kill.
This film shows how owners are putting public lives at risk by letting people pet and sit on wild tigers and other animals, how the animals are being defanged or declawed to make them safer, and how primates are being dressed in nappies, has and even jewelry.
