Pete Alonso, Alex Rodriguez are also obsessed with 'Tiger King'

Garretson, a former strip club and zoo owner who sold several of the big cats he owned to Joe's park, made a decision to become an Federal Bureau of Investigation informant when the feds started closing in on him for his own lawbreaking and participation in Joe Exotic's murder-for-hire plot.

In his latest Instagram post, the Ohio MMA star and Valley View firefighter posted an image of himself as the Tiger King with a fancy auto, fur coat and tiger.

As part of his work for the FBI, Garretson introduced Joe to the FBI agent who was posing undercover as a hitman. Mind you, it was the Feds who sent him to the bing.


While there aren't many good people to be found in the exotic animal underworld, a lot of viewers have expressed admiration for Saff - the loyal, level-headed keeper who lost an arm during a tiger mauling, and appeared to be one of the few people at the zoo who genuinely cared about the animals.

In watching Tiger King, you are struck by how unsavoury almost all of these individuals are. The story of Carole feeding her husband to their tigers and lions may not be true, but she does seem to have wrested control of his millions to the detriment of his first wife and children.

Baskin also addressed the mounting criticisms and questions about Big Cat Rescue's operations, such as not setting the animals free, allowing visitors in the sanctuary, how the staff makes money, and more. Eventually, he began sending them ideas for songs, which Johnson and his now-deceased partner, Danny Clinton, would write, record, and send back to him.


Security footage showed a man who resembled Kirkman near the warehouse around the time of the fire. Do I put donations to zoos to help these tigers out? I do. It isn't too much of a stretch to see similarities in how the people who control these animals also extend the same control over the humans around them: as Joe did with John and Travis, as Doc Antle did with his female employees. "Not a single animal benefited from this war [between Joe and Carole]". They provide something of a moral counterweight to all the bleak specimens of humanity the docuseries otherwise throws up.

Former NWA champion Tim Storm revealed in a new Youtube video that he's met Joe Exotic, the subject of the popular Netflix documentary Tiger King.

Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness is now streaming on Netflix and we couldn't think of a better time to check it out now that you're quarantined at home.
