Carole Baskin’s Big Cat Rescue sanctuary was granted control over Joe Exotic’s former Oklahoma exotic animal park in Wynnewood back in mid-2020. This was to settle the $1 million judgment she won against him in their notorious trademark lawsuit.
TMZ just got the paperwork showing that Big Cat Rescue sold the property formerly known as Joe Exotic’s G.W. Zoo for $140k in June to Francisco and Nelly Vazquez.There was one really big stipulation of the sale: it can’t be a zoo for at least 100 years. The new owners also can’t name any new business on the property after anything related to its ‘Tiger King’ past, including Joe Exotic, G.W. Zoo, anything with the word “tiger” or “big cat.”No more cool cats and kittens.
