FACTS

    2020 continues to shock. Carol Baskin was given Joe Exotic’s zoo in a decision made Monday by the courts after a longstanding battle between the two. Baskin’s Big Cat Rescue Corporation won the case against Exotic’s Greater Wynnewood Development Group (GWDG), LLC. The GWDG has 120 days to clear out from the premises and remove the 200-plus animals residing on the grounds. Baskin and Exotic rose to widespread fame after the Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness Netflix series aired this year and was soon trending as one of Netflix’s most popular releases in history. Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joe Maldonado-Passage, was sentenced to 22 years in prison for animal abuse, falsifying records, and two accounts of murder-for-hire against Baskin. 

    OPINIONS:

    EXOTIC

    “You know, it would be nice if I could actually see me being famous out there. But I’ve seen these same four walls for a year and a half now.” He added, “I’m done with the Carole Baskin saga. It’s now time to turn the tables and Joe get out of jail a free man and exonerated from all these charges.”

    ON BASKIN

    The Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister declared in an interview earlier this week that the will of Baskin’s first husband Don Lewis, who went missing and was later confirmed dead, was forged. Exotic has accused Baskin of murdering her husband in order to inherit his wealth, including his $10 million estate. She has denied any involvement in his disappearance. Chronister stated of the will that “two experts deem it 100 percent a forgery. But, we knew that…we knew that before.” He has said that he believes Lewis was murdered, and while he doesn’t know who did it, investigators have some leads.
