It is the ultimate humiliation for Mr Joe Exotic. His zoo has been given to his arch nemesis, Carole Baskin, the owner of Big Cat Rescue. The transfer took place under a court order to satisfy a successful claim for compensation by Carole Baskin against Joe Exotic when he infringed her trademark and she won a $1 million judgement against him.
Joe Exotic had tried to circumvent the judgement by transferring his zoo to his mother. It was a fraudulent transfer said the judge Scott Palk.
The zoo and its cabins and vehicles are now the property of Ms Baskin the judge said. He gave Mr Exotic’s company 120 days to vacate the premises and to move all the animals there elsewhere.
You should by now know that Mr Exotic is in jail serving a 22 year sentence for murder-for hire plot to kill Baskin and for killing five tigers.
Exotic’s true name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage. He is the notorious star of the popular documentary series Tiger King. His zoo is called the Greater Wynnewood go to sleep Exotic Animal Park.
