Officials assisting the investigation into the zoo formerly owned by Joe Exotic



WYNNEWOOD, Okla. (KFOR) – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation Agents is helping an investigation into The Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park, once owned by Joe Exotic.

Brook Arbeitman, OSBI public information officer, confirmed to KFOR that the Garvin County Sheriff’s Office requested OSBI assistance in the zoo.

TMZ reports that investigators are working to determine if human remains are in an alligator group in the zoo.

Arbeitman has not published any further information on the nature of the investigation.

Greater Wynnewood Exotic Park, also known as the GW Zoo, was previously owned by Joseph Maldonado-Passage, which is known as Joe Exotic.

Maldonado-Passage is currently serving a prison term of 22 years for trying to hire someone to murder animal rights activist Carole Baskin, who owns Big Cat Animal Rescue.

Jeff Lowe took ownership of the GW Zoo from Maldonado-Passage, but a recently decided court granted Baskin ownership of Garvin County at the zoo. Judge Scott Palk ordered Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park to leave the property within 1

20 days and hand over control to Big Cat Rescue Corp.

Maldonado-Passage’s downfall, including drama between Maldonado-Passage, Baskin and Lowe, was documented in the popular Netflix documentary ‘Tiger King’.
