A zoo that was filmed abusing one of its tigers is shutting its doors for good - thanks in no small part to the outrage of former customers.
Back in December, a video was released showing Michael Hackenberger, the co-owner of the Bowmanville Zoo in Ontario, Canada, appearing to repeatedly whip one of his tigers during a training session on the zoo's grounds.
Hackenberger, a well-known animal trainer who's worked on popular shows and films including "Life of Pi," can be seen cracking his whip up to 19 times while the tiger, a young male named Uno, lies on his back cowering.
Hackenberger also shouts curses at the frightened animal, later appearing to whip the tiger in the face.
"I like hitting him in the face," he says.
