Tiger King Park Officially Reopens To The Public

Tiger King Park Officially Reopens To The Public

The controversial park behind Netflix hit and lockdown saviour Tiger King has officially reopened its doors for business, with people queuing for hours to get in.

Finally able to cash in on all that PR (all good publicitiy is good publicity, right?), the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park seems to be rebranded as Tiger King Park - and why not?

The now infamous roadside zoo, which was once owned by the incarcerated Joe Exotic/Malonado-Passage, has been closed down for the last few weeks due to coronavirus pandemic restrictions.

But after the state of Oklahoma made the decision to lift its stay at home rules, hundreds flocked to the Tiger King Park to experience it for themselves - despite criticism of animal cruelty.

As reported by Daily Mail, visitors queued up to get into the park, with many not wearing masks and the majority breaking social distancing regulations that have been set out in many other parts of the world as a measure to slow the spread of the virus.

Huge crowds of kids and adults could also be seen watching the park's caged big cats perform.

If you've watched the show, and even if you haven't, you'll probably be aware that it's now not owned by Joe Exotic, and is under the management of his rival Jeff Low. Lowe took over ownership when Joe Exotic was jailed for plotting his big cat world rival, animal rights activist Carole Baskin.

Joe Exotic Juror Says Tiger King Did 'Huge Injustice To The Jury'

The news outlet reported the Lowe and his wife Lauren greeted guests, with Erik Cowie and Allen Glover, who Joe had allegedly hired to kill Baskin also in attendance.

Baskin, who has not done a single broadcast interview since the show, was actually tricked by famous YouTube pranksters Josh Pieters and Archie Manners.

The pair pulled off an incredible feat on Sunday, by not only getting the world's first interview with Carole Baskin, but also by tricking her into thinking that she was being interviewed by Jimmy Fallon.

The pranksters got the enemy of the Tiger King, Carole Baskin on the series, where they pretend to get celebrities interviewed by chat show hosts - when really they're hiding behind the guise of a fake production company and using a soundboard with clips of talk show hosts asking questions to real celebrities.

But when she commented beneath the video, it seems that she was on to them all along.

Looks like there's no tricking our Tiger Queen, after all.
