Today, there has been a shocking and unexpected development regarding the infamous Tiger King zoo once owned by Joe Exotic...
Who can forget the Tiger King obsession that gripped us earlier this year?Just as we were settling to life in lockdown, Netflix dropped perhaps the most binge-able and iconic docuseries of 2020.
Tiger King gave us an exclusive insight into the captivity of big cats here in America...And it retold the story of a war between the flamboyant tiger owner, Joe Exotic, and his arch-enemy, the Florida-based animal activist, Carole Baskin.
But it wasn't just about the tigers and lions...It was mostly about the scandalous lives of these people in America's big cat community... And we just couldn't get enough.
There was a lot of drama over the years...And Joe Exotic seemed to really have it in for (that b***h) Carole Baskin, with footage showing him repeatedly wishing death upon her and describing how he would like to kill her.
The show took things to a whole new level...And it was quickly branded as "bonkers" yet "brilliant" by intrigued viewers.
Who knew there was such a large cult of exotic animal hoarders in the US?And who knew there was so much rivalry and hate?
But people seemed to forget that this was based on real-life...And when Joe's life gradually began to spiral out of control, he landed himself into some deep trouble.
After one of Joe Exotic's marriages tragically fell apart...The big cat fanatic 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.Joe was sentenced to twenty-two years in prison for attempting to have Carole murdered.
He had allegedly hired a hitman to take Carole out whilst she was biking down a deserted bike path...But the FBI became involved and they managed to put a stop to his plan. To this day, the infamous big cat owner still resides behind bars.
And that's the end of the Tiger King tale, right?
Well, you might want to think again.
After Joe Exotic was thrown behind bars...The ownership of the Oklahoma zoo at the center of the series was handed over to none-other than Carole Baskin.
And, to make things even more scandalous...Jeff Lowe, another nemesis of Joe's, stepped in as the attraction's senior manager.
However, his dream of running the zoo has been a little shortlived...
Because, today, he unexpectedly announced that the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park would be closing its doors for good.
