    I'm not sure the new name is a good idea, but the zoo, formerly Joe's, reopened this past weekend: https://nypost.com/2020/05/06/tiger-...irus-shutdown/

    Have to capitalize on that 15 minutes of fame while they can.

    That series is like a train wreck, it’s just hard to look away and honestly whoever edited it the way they did with passively dropping a bombshell then having cliffhanger endings each episode... that was legitimately brilliant.

    Tigers are endangered species... and to me, the saddest part of this series was seeing them treated and handled the way they were. Putting them down for any reason other than to end their suffering is just not right. There are only about 3,500 left in the wild. I am glad they ended it with that message but I wish conservation efforts could have played a bigger part in the series. The takeaway should have been trying to help out scientific and wildlife organizations but sadly instead we have people lined up wanting to go to exotic animal farms now.

    Another takeaway is the lack of regulatory oversight on these operations.

    When was it closed? We were there on April 29th and had called the weekend before to make sure they were open.

    I was actually surprised how clean the little zoo actually was. Unfortunately it reminded me of the OKC Zoo back in the 70's with tiny enclosures for such large animals.

    I don't know when it closed, but it was due to the pandemic.

    Must have been for a short period of time. That may also explain why when we went it was completely empty of patrons. It was us and maybe a dozen other people.

    Looks like like there is more to the story. A Florida sheriff said Don Lewis’ will was forged. Don Lewis was married to Carol Baskin when he died. His will left Baskin his $10M estate. This will ramp up the talk of Baskin murdering Lewis.

    The US Department of Agriculture said it suspended the exhibitor license for Greater Wynnwood Exotic Animal Park and Jeffrey Lowe on Monday. The park is now closed to the public.

    Looks like Carol Baskin just got an extension on her 15 minutes of fame. Going to be on Dancing with the Stars.

    I am not sure how that show works, but if it is winning by fan vote - I don't see it going well. lol

    It’s part judges scoring and part fan votes. We watch occasionally based on who’s on that season. With Carol Baskin and Charles Barkley being two “Stars” we’ll be passing this season unless the others are really interesting.

    Johnny Weir should be interesting, he should do well because of his training.

    Yeah. He should be pretty good. All the skaters have been. I haven’t seen the entire cast. I need to look it up.

    I only know this because I heard Baskin was going to be on, looked up the lineup, and I believe it's actually Charles Oakley, not Barkley. Oakley, the former New York Knick (among other teams). I only recall this because I had no idea Charles Oakley was a "famous" person, and I was an NBA fan when Jordan/Knicks series were good.

    This isn’t about the Netflix documentary but Joe Exotic will be resentenced:
