By now, we all know that the Netflix documentary famous Tiger King, or Joe Exotic, has been imprisoned with counts of killing 5 tigers, selling and trafficking endangered animals, and trying to hire someone to kill Carole Baskin- another wildlife reserve owner in which he had a very aggressive feud with. If you haven’t seen all the drama and details of Joe Exotic’s demise, I strongly encourage you to watch the Netflix documentary. Here’s the trailer.
An interesting discovery was made on Joe Exotic’s former park (Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park) that held the possibility of something even bigger going on. Officials reported a likelihood of human bones on the park grounds, specifically from the alligator pit. This was found during a taping of Ghost Adventures, where cadaver dogs became alert near the pit. This led to the dogs’ handlers calling law officials.
This theory was quickly discredited when the remains contained some kind of tail bone and a small animal carcass. You can read more about it here. Nonetheless, Joe is still serving 22 years in federal prison, and the remaining tigers on his former park have gone to Carole Baskin’s Big Cat Rescue. Talk about irony.
