Wondery Introduces Joe Exotic: Tiger King
For Joe Exotic, life was a zoo. On sixteen acres of dry Oklahoma prairie, Joe, whose last name is clearly not exotic, but that is what he calls himself, scratched out a living as a roadside wildlife attraction. Housing baboons, gators, and big cats. But he liked sideshow theatre in his personal life too.
He was a gun toting, spurs wearing, tiger breading polygamist gay cowboy with a mullet. He was an eccentric local celebrity who even handed out condoms with his face printed on them. He had his own brand of crazy, but somewhere he pushed it too far. Find out how a love of animals turned to hate and murderous revenge.
