Exotic pet trade documentary now available online

Shortly after law enforcement expert Tim Harrison joined the International Fund for Animal Welfare on Capitol Hill for a briefing on the Big Cat Public Safety Act (H.R. 3546), the shocking documentary The Elephant in the Living Room became available to stream for free on Hulu.

The film, which captures Mr. Harrison’s harrowing experiences as a law enforcement officer dealing with exotic pets, sheds light on the country’s captive big cats crisis and the serious risks that emergency responders regularly encounter.

As Hulu features this important film, a wide audience of Americans will have the opportunity to learn about the dangers of owning wild animals and the need for reform in the US.

This will, in turn, help to further cement the majority view that Congress must enact Big Cat Public Safety Act to keep animals, law enforcement officers and the public safe.

Please help spread the word about this opportunity to view The Elephant in the Living Room online for free by sharing this post with friends, family, and social media.
