Hi all you cool cats and kittens…..
Carole Baskin, arch nemesis of Tiger King‘s, “Joe Exotic” has been granted control of his G.W. Exotic Animal Memorial Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma, in the latest twist emerging from the Netflix series.
A judge has found that the property belonging to Exotic (real name Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage) was fraudulently transferred to his mother years ago.
In 2013, Exotic was ordered to pay Big Cat Rescue nearly $1 million to resolve a two-year-old trademark infringement lawsuit. The suit, which was featured in the Netflix series, involved Exotic’s use of logos and images that were very similar to those created and owned by Big Cat Rescue.
The park has been under the control of Jeff Lowe in recent years, but is now being handed over to Baskin — the very woman whom Joe was convicted of plotting to kill.
Lowe has 120 days to vacate the premises — including all of his animals currently residing there.
Joe Exotic is currently serving 22 years in prison after being convicted in 2019 of trying to hire a hitman to kill Baskin.
