The Elephant in the Living Room

"The Elephant in the Living Room" delves into the develop mode of Americans treating some of the most dangerous animals on Earth as household pets. Webber anchors his film in the activities of Tim Harrison, a now retired safety officer in Oakwood, Ohio, a leafy suburban community of stately homes on huge lots.

In the review of "The Elephant in the Living Room," Harrison is a hunter and he captured and rescued several of crocodiles, lions, tigers and most poisonous snakes all in the U.S. An interstate highway bring Harrison in contact with the lion's owner, Terry Brumfield, who lives in nearby Pike County, where it is absolutely legal for him to keep the lion, Lambert, and his mate, Lacie, in a large caged area.

The effects of a serious truck accident, Brumfield has been soothed by his lions' presence and loves them like his own children. While fearing for the animals' ultimate fate, Harrison wins Brumfield's trust, and the unfolding of the men's friendship and the circumstances of the lions form the escape of the film.

"The Elephant in the Living Room" reveals the lunacy, pitilessness and danger of treating often deadly exotic animals as pets. This impeccably made film is chock full of enlightening and sometimes bizarre moments: visits to an exotic animal expo and an auction at which a small boy is given a dangerous baby snake as a pet.

He includes a Las Vegas exotic pets dealer, a trained zoologist who sagely states that unless owners of such creatures act responsibly, fear amid the public will cause increasing banning of the private ownership of such pets. "The Elephant in the Living Room" could barely be more engaging or more cognizance increasing.
