Carole Baskin Has Been Awarded The Zoo Once Owned By Joe Exotic

A federal judge has given Carole Baskin full control of Joe Exotic’s old zoo in Oklahoma as part of a ruling in a $1 million dispute.

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 and controller has been ordered to leave within 120 days.

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.
