Court grants Carole Baskin ownership of the ‘Tiger King’ zoo formerly owned by Joe Exotic

The zoo formerly owned by the star of Netflix documentary ‘Tiger King’ is to be handed over to the woman he was convicted of trying to have killed.

A federal judge has given Carole Baskin control of Joe Exotic’s old zoo in Oklahoma as part of a ruling in a $1m trademark dispute, BBC reported.

Tiger King


Tiger King, which became a huge hit on Netflix in March, tells of Joe Exotic’s colourful life and his rivalry with Baskin, the owner of an animal sanctuary in Florida.


The rivalry extended to Exotic real name Joseph Maldonado-Passage using logos that resembled those owned by Baskin’s Big Cat Rescue company.


Baskin sued Exotic for trademark infringement in 2011, a case that ended two years later with the latter being ordered to pay Big Cat Rescue $1m.


Joe Exotic is currently serving a 22-year sentence for his involvement in a murder-for-hire plot and animal abuse.


The zoo’s current operator has been ordered to leave within 120 days. Jeff Lowe, Joe Exotic’s former business partner, has been told to vacate the premises in Wynnewood, Oklahoma, and remove all of his exotic animals.
