Alison and Donald journey to a remote Nevada town where they confront tiger owner Karl Mitchell about his dangerous practice of allowing visitors to get up close and personal with his big cats. And visit Lillian Caudill, who used to run a North Carolina roadside zoo, but was forced to close it and relocate the animals. The zoo still has one resident: Shadow, a black bear. Lillian loves him but understands he would be happier in a more natural environment and agrees to move him to a sanctuary.
