FOX Files: The Animal Business

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The animal business is a huge money maker in the Midwest and it's sometimes hidden. We begin our special report with a story about what's sometimes called "captive hunting."

Some compare it to hunting at a place like Grant's Farm, a fenced preserve for wildlife, where the animals are not really wild.

As you're about to see, the animals are accustomed to people, because they grew up around humans who often feed the animals by hand.

Now imagine being able to pay to shoot these exotics.
