Netflix's docuseries, Tiger King gives us a majestic 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...

via: IMDB

It is mostly about the scandalous lives of these people in America's big cat community... and we cannot get enough.

There was a lot of drama over the years...

via: Netflix

And Joe Exotic 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. Yikes.

The show takes things to a whole new level...

via: Netflix

And it has already been branded as "bonkers" by viewers but that certainly doesn't mean it isn't binge-worthy.

Who knew there was such a large cult of exotic animal hoarders in the US?

via: Netflix

And who knew there was so much rivalry and hate?

But people seem to be forgetting that this is based on real-life...

via: Netflix

And when Joe's life gradually began to spiral out of control, he landed himself into some deep trouble.

Joe is an openly gay man...

via: Youtube

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.

And after this marriage tragically fell apart...

via: Netflix

Joe himself fell into a downward spiral and his obsession with Carole and her husband grew even bigger.

And last year, things took a turn for the worst.

via: Netflix

Joe was sentenced to twenty-two years in prison for attempting to have Carole murdered.

He hired a hitman to take Carole out whilst she was biking down a deserted bike path...

via: IMDB

But the FBI became involved and they thankfully managed to put a stop to this dangerous plan.

Many viewers believe that Joe belongs in prison after his alarming behavior...

via: IMDB

And of course, the internet is now a Tiger King minefield.

There's no doubt the doc-series is a wild ride.

But it seems there were some major facts that were left out of the show, according to an insider...
