Storyline

Among the eccentrics and cult personalities in the stranger-than-fiction world of big cat owners, few stand out more than Joe Exotic, a mulleted, gun-toting polygamist and country western singer who presides over an Oklahoma roadside zoo. Charismatic but misguided, Joe and an unbelievable cast of characters including drug kingpins, conmen, and cult leaders all share a passion for big cats and the status and attention their dangerous menageries garner. But things take a dark turn when Carole Baskin, an animal activist and owner of a big cat sanctuary, threatens to put them out of business, stoking a rivalry that eventually leads to Joe's arrest for a murder-for-hire plot, and reveals a twisted tale where the only thing more dangerous than a big cat is its owner.

Trivia

John Finlay, Joe's husband, was asked by the producers to remove his dental bridge for filming, according to an Us Weekly interview with Doc Antle. "John (Finlay) was forced to take his teeth out for the series." "He had bridgework done ... But the show wanted him portrayed a certain way, so the teeth had to come out. He had a full set of teeth before taping." See more »

Pathological Liars Abound
22 March 2020 | by SGSypultSee all my reviews

Interesting series on many levels, but everyone featured is a pathological liar and experienced various mental illnesses. The truth means nothing to these people, so it will never be found. Protecting the animals is the only thing we should care about here. The actual "animals" are the featured people: Baskin, Antle and Schreibvogel. Sick, awful human beings.
