Joe Exotic Will Be Delighted - Carole Baskin Has Been Awarded His Zoo!

The central feud of Tiger King, the Netflix documentary that dominated the first few weeks of the lockdown, but feels about 100 years ago, was Joe Exotic Vs. Carole Baskin. As the show went on, the hatred shown by Exotics towards Baskin escalated and became uncomfortable. As we know, Joe is currently serving a 22 year sentence for two counts of murder for fire for his plot to have Baskin, the CEO of Big Cat Rescue, killed, as well as other animal welfare related crimes.

Now Joe, who is currently suing the US government and demanding a federal pardon from Donald Trump, has gotten the news he'll have most dreaded - Carole Baskin has been awarded his zoo!

An Oklahoma judge ruled in favor of Baskin's Big Cat Rescue yesterday in its lawsuit against the Greater Wynnewood Development Group, the company owned by Exotic.
The order gives Baskin control of the land in Garvin County, Oklahoma, the home of the GW Zoo feautred on the Netflix series. The company have been given 120 days to vacate the premises which will include also vacating all of the zoo animals from the property.

In 2013, Baskin sued Exotic for trademark infringement and was awarded $1million, most of which has never been paid.
