While Joe Exotic is currently in prison, it seems as though his long-term rival Carole Baskin is living her best life as she had recently won control over Joe Exotic’s former zoo…

Tiger King is perhaps the most binge-able yet.
Netflix’s docuseries, Tiger King gives us an eye-opening insight into the captivity of big cats here in America.
The 7-part series retells the story of a war between a very flamboyant tiger owner named Joe Exotic and his enemy, a Florida-based animal activist named Carole Baskin.
But it isn’t just about the tigers and lions…
It is mostly about the scandalous lives of these people in America’s big cat community… and we cannot get enough.
And who knew there was so much rivalry and hate?
There was a lot of drama in the life of Joe Exotic…
And the big cat owner seemed to really have it in for Carole Baskin, with footage showing him repeatedly wishing death upon her and describing how he would like to kill her after she tried to expose his zoo.
But people seem to be forgetting that this is based on real-life…
And when Joe’s life gradually began to spiral out of control, he landed himself into some deep trouble.
And after he married both John Finlay and Travis Maldonado in a 3-way ceremony, both of his husbands gradually deteriorated with drug use and mental health problems.
Travis tragically took his own life after he made claims that he wasn’t at all gay, and Joe had simply hoodwinked him by fueling his addictions.
Joe himself fell into a downward spiral and his obsession with Carole and her missing ex-husband grew even bigger.
Joe was sentenced to twenty-two years in prison.
He allegedly hired a hitman to take Carole out whilst she was biking down a deserted bike path before the FBI became involved and thus foiled his dangerous plan.
Though his treatment of his tigers has always been questionable, it was found that Joe had killed several of the older big cats to make room for new arrivals at his animal park.
Most of us believe that this sentencing is more than reasonable.
Despite how cooky he comes across as on camera, it’s undeniable that Joe belongs behind bars for his appalling behavior to both his staff and his innocent animals.
Evidently hoodwinked by his “loveable” on-screen persona, many people have been taking to Twitter to protest his sentencing.
I’ve lost all faith in humanity.
So many people are set on seeing Exotic walk free…
Simply because he makes good television.
And it is incredibly worrying, if not a little unsurprising.
Why doesn’t this shock me at all?
It seems as though Carole’s efforts aren’t going to waste. Baskin, 58, and her Big Cat Rescue organization have been granted full control of Joe Exotic’s former zoo.
So while Exotic has no control over what is going on in the outside world, Jeff Lowe will be responsible for removing all the animals from the premises in the next 120 days.
And after a long battle, it seems as though Baskin has come out on top.
It’s not looking great for Exotic at the moment, and while Trump focuses on more important issues, his cause continues to be pushed down to the bottom of the list. Keep scrolling to read more about the protests taking over America…
