Netflix's Tiger King Documentary Might Be One of the Wildest Stories We've Ever Heard
If you're looking to get taken on a wild ride filled with big cats and the gay, gun-wielding polygamist who illegally bred them, Netflix's Tiger King documentary is for you! The doc tells the story of Joe Exotic, aka Joseph Maldonado-Passage, a larger-than-life personality who began the Garold Wayne Exotic Animal Memorial Park in Wynnewood, OK, in 1987. As the trailer highlights, Exotic bred animals for profit and became known for his interesting love life, wild YouTube channel, and contentious rivalry with the head of Big Cat Rescue, Carole Baskin. The conflict proved so hostile, Exotic even hired a hitman to murder the Florida wildlife sanctuary owner!
Yes, this is a true story and not the plot of a whacky Lifetime film. Watch the trailer above, and delve into the life of the Tiger King when the doc hits Netflix on March 20.
