We began the 20th century with over 100,000 wild tigers. We ended the same century with less than 4,000. Hunted and then poached, encroached upon and then slaughtered, the wild tigers of Asia are in trouble and face extinction. But there is a secret number, a terrifying number few know: the shocking number of the hidden tigers of America. An estimated 10,000 of these live in the backyards, roadside attractions, theme parks, zoos and sanctuaries throughout North America. THE HIDDEN TIGER travels the world and exposes the deadly links between the captive tigers and the wild tigers’ possible extinction.
