The zoo that used to belong to the “Tiger King”, Joe Exotic, was flooded with investigators who were searching for human remains after two cadaver dogs seemed to pick up the scent of a dead body. However, the local Sherriff’s office in Oklahoma confirmed that no human remains were found, and instead, the body of a small animal was discovered. Taylor Adams, a local reporter for KFOR-TV, reported the details in a tweet. She wrote on Friday, “EXOTIC UPDATE: The Garvin County Sheriff says no human remains were found on-site at the GW Zoo tonight. Instead…a small animal. He says the investigation is over. @kfor @joe_exotic.”

Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park once belonged to Joe Exotic who was the subject of a Netflix docuseries called Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness. According to KOCO-TV, the suspicion started when the dogs, who were near the zoo filming an episode of Ghost Adventures seemed to pick up the scent of human remains at the site and the handlers informed the local authorities.
Exotic lost the zoo after he was arrested and convicting for trying to hire a hitman to kill his rival, Carole Baskins. He was also convicted on several charges of animal abuse. The zoo is now owned by Baskin after being awarded ownership as a result of a trademark dispute.
Joe Exotic has also been trying to get the attention of President Trump with plans to ask him for a Presidential pardon. Trump has not responded to the request.
