Last year Carole Baskin assumed ownership of Joe Exotic’s zoo in Oklahoma as part of a legal settlement. And she has officially dismantled it.
She sold it to a couple last June for $140K, but it came with a few stipulations.
First off . . . the property can’t be used as a zoo or to house exotic animals for 100 years.
And secondly, the owners cannot name any business on the property after “Tiger King”, its former name the G.W. Zoo, Joe’s name, or even the words “tiger” or “big cat”.
Carole’s husband said, quote, “If it became an RV park or storage unit . . . We don’t want it named the Tiger King RV Park. We would like the 20 years of mistreatment of animals there to be forgotten and be history.”
