For anybody who watched Netflix’s hit docuseries Tiger King, it is abundantly clear there’s no love lost between Joe Exotic and Carol Baskin.
Case in point, he’s currently serving a 22-year sentence for putting a hit out on her, but with the latest court decision, Joe definitely won’t be growing any fonder. A judge has since ordered that the keys to his entire Oklahoma zoo be handed over to Carol.
It stems from the 2013 decision that found Joe guilty of copyright infringement against Carol’s Big Cat Rescue, where he was ordered to pay her $1 million.
Around that time, Joe transferred ownership of his zoo over to his mom, who eventually admitted under oath, that was only done to protect the property from creditors and mainly stop Carole Baskin from ever getting it.
Which, didn’t work.
The current zoo operator now has 120 days to transfer it over to her along with several cars and cabins on the property, but not the tigers.
They’ll all need to be removed by then and authorities are closely monitoring the situation to make sure al the animals there find appropriate new homes.
