Current TV is good when it comes to documentaries, no doubt about it, so now, Current TV’s award-winning investigative series “Vanguard” will present “Tiger Farms”. Adam Yamaguchi travels to South Asia where he investigates the illegal but lucrative black market for tigers and tiger parts, particularly in China, where the Wild Tiger is practically extinct. Adam exposes the sometimes-deplorable conditions in China’s numerous Tiger Parks, government-run conservation centers that often appear to be anything but.
