'Life Of Pi' Trainer Filmed Allegedly Whipping Young Tiger

"I like hitting him in the face," the trainer says.

The trainer is Michael Hackenberger, co-owner of the Bowmanville Zoo in Ontario, Canada, and an animal trainer for many popular shows and films including "The Interview" and "Life of Pi." In a video released by PETA on Tuesday, Hackenberger is shown viciously whipping a young tiger to force him to perform.
