Estimators report there are more tigers living in private captivity in the United States, than there are roaming around the world. In the film, The Tiger Next Door, longtime animal lover Dennis Hill is faced with getting rid of most, if not all of his animals. Before Dennis Hill owned exotic animals, he was a very wealthy construction worker until he let the rich lifestyle get the best of him, and lost most of his money through drugs, reckless motorcycle driving, and a rough divorce. After Hill was sentenced to six month house arrest, he found his true passion to be owning and breeding tigers. The major controversy the film discussed was that tigers are exotic and unpredictable animals, and even the most skilled tiger handler cannot fully predict what they will do. This causes neighbors and wildlife conservationists to be skeptical and uneasy when they find out that someone in the community owns and breeds tigers and other exotic animals.
The question of humanity arises every couple of years, on the topic - should exotic animals be allowed to be kept as pets. Is it humane for the beings who feel pain, give birth, take care of their young like human beings do to be behind bars? According to the National Geographic 66 percent of wild animals are owned privately while the 28 percent of the animals reside in the zoo. Some of the exotic animals can be found as pets rather than in the wild. The estimated number of Tigers kept as pets are between 5,000 and 7,000, which is more than the ones that exist in the wild. Interested buyers can purchase a tiger cheaper than some of the purebred dogs, for the price as shocking as 300 dollars. Though some states in the United States do allow wild animals as pets, it is still illegal in most states or require a license for it. Most of the animals as pets are through illegal routes like underground auctions and smuggling.

Parenting styles differ from generations, as well as, from different countries across the world. When two different cultures collide, that leaves parents in a limbo in trying to decide what parenting technique would be the most beneficial for future offspring. Amy Chua, a Yale Law School graduate of Chinese descent, wrote a story about the details of her and her husbands’ choice in how to parent their children. The book is entitled “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother,” which she proclaims that “Chinese parents are better at raising children than westerners”. At creation of this book, Chua has received an enormous amount of feedback, mostly negative. However, the article “Amy Chua is a Wimp” written by author David Brooks, offers a different take on Chuas’ book. Which leaves everyone wondering what really is the best way to set up the next generation to reach their highest potential.
