The Elephant in the Living Room is a powerful documentary that has been praised by critics as one of the best films of the year (2011) and is the winner of 5 Best Documentary Awards. A summary on the Hillsborough County Public Library website describes the film as follows:

"Takes viewers on a journey deep inside the controversial American subculture of raising the most dangerous animals in the world as common household pets. The film courageously exposes the shocking reality behind the multibillion-dollar exotic pet industry with stunning photography, inspiring storytelling, and unprecedented access into a world rarely seen, right in our own backyard."

This film is available at the Pinellas and Hillsborough County public libraries. It is also available at other locations for rental or purchase. Choose a date convenient for you and invite friends and family to watch this informative and entertaining film and to learn why wild animals are meant to live in the wild in their natural habitats and not as household pets.
