La laisse du tigre

F(r)ictions humanimales en Amérique du Nord

Author/Illustrator/Editor: David Jaclin

If a Bengal tiger anxiously splashes around in a small plastic pool in the summer and feeds on supermarket meat, is it still a tiger? By examining the troubled existence of so-called wild animals now living under overwhelmingly domestic and artificial conditions, this book raises the dual question of communication and animality. This book presents animal biographies, such as that of a former laboratory chimpanzee (Rachel) now living in an evangelizing sanctuary, or that of an “unemployed” dolphin (Nellie) put up for auction after the amusement park where it was born and raised went bankrupt.
