Police rush to Tiger King zoo amid allegations ‘human remains found in alligator pen’
Police have rushed to the scene of the “Tiger King” zoo amid allegations human remains have been uncovered in an alligator enclosure.
Netflix documentary fans were transfixed earlier this year when the series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness was unleashed on the streaming service.
Viewers watched as ‘Tiger King’ himself, Joe Exotic – aka 57-year-old Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage – was thrown behind bars for two counts of murder for hire amid a failed, and alleged, assassination plot against animal rights activist, Carole Baskin.
However, new evidence has been suggested on Friday that human remains may have been uncovered on the grounds of the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park (a.k.a. G. W. Zoo) in Wynnewood, Oklahoma.
Local police have reason to believe human remains are buried under an alligator pen at the controversial zoo – which is currently owned by Jeff Lowe.
The outlet claims police dogs sniffed out “what their trainer believes are human remains” on Thursday.
The news source adds: “The local sheriff’s deputies are on the scene right now, and we’re told they’re currently discussing a method to determine if remains are there … and, if so, how to dig them up safely.”
The snigger dogs were reportedly taken to the zoo as part of a TV show called Ghose Adventures, hosted by paranormal investigator Zak Bagans.
A source told TMZ that the human remains could be cremated remains of people who wanted to be buried at the site.
They said: ”Joe has said there are ashes of 4 people buried on the property as a memorial.”
They clarified the alleged remains are of: “people who chose to make the zoo their final resting place.”
Tiger King showed Joe lose his zoo to Jeff after he was seemingly swindled out of the property.
Meanwhile, a judge recently ruled that animal rights activist Carole should have ownership of the zoo following her own lengthy legal battle against Joe.
