‘Tiger King’ Zoo Has Closed Permanently

The exotic cat zoo which was made famous by the iconic Netflix show, Tiger King, has closed permanently.

The zoo, which is now-named Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park, announced that they would be closing in a Facebook post.

Current owner Jeff Lowe, who’s the arch-nemesis of Joe Exotic, said that the zoo would be closed to the public, effective immediately.

The post read:

The Tiger King phenomenon has definitely changed our lives in many ways. It has brought us more attention than any human deserves, good and bad. It has, and probably will continue to make us a target of every nutjob and animal rights loon in the World, but we are prepared.

It has also provided us with an unfathomable source of income. Income that will guarantee the long term care of our animals and allow us to be very selective going forward.

As of today, we have decided to close the old zoo effective immediately.

The post continued:

Due to the permanent closure of the Wynnewood Zoo, I’m forfeiting my USDA exhibitors license. The very agency that has given my facility five consecutive perfect inspections, has now folded to the pressures of PETA and continue to make false accusations against me.

Suspiciously, less than 24 hours after I contacted the USDA to voluntarily forfeit my license, they notify me that they are suspending my license for 21 days for a litany of falsehoods.

In the State of Oklahoma, exotic animal ownership is perfectly legal. Rest assured that all the animals will continue to have excellent care, and consequently will no longer be subject to USDA inspections or PETA spies.

We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. Effective immediately, we are closed to the public!

Lowe also hinted at somewhat of a Tiger King spin-off featuring himself and his wife claiming that their ‘new park will be a private film set for Tiger King related content’…
