Will Henry Rollins' Exotic Pets Show Help or Hurt Animals?

Hard rockin’ Renaissance man Henry Rollins is slated to host “Animal Underworld,” a National Geographic miniseries that shows the unusual ways that humans interact with exotic animals.

No doubt this three-episode series is in response to the success of Nat Geo Wild’s “Snake Underworld,” a documentary where Rollins explored the secret subculture of humans and snakes, including the practice of shooting up snake venom — see the video for the gruesome deets.

NatGeo senior VP Geoff Daniels explains more about “Animal Underworld”: “It’s really an investigation into our relationship with animals. It’s covering the full range from the off-beat and quirky to the potentially illicit. And our approach to (the latter) is to make sure that we’re obviously not encouraging that behavior.”

Can a program that takes viewers to Arizona’s Road Kill Cafe —  a destination on Rollins’ trek — present a dead squirrel appetizer with an objective tone?  Will the program truly unveil illicit practices and abuses of exotics? Or will it be a sensationalist exposé on animals best left in the wild?

Here’s hoping that Hank doesn’t become the Joe Francis of the animal world.
