Netflix Tiger King zoo raided over fears 'human remains found in alligator pen'

Police were called to Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park, formerly owned by Netflix ‘s Tiger King star Joe Exotic, over fears that there were human remains in the alligator pit.

The zoo, now under the care of Jeff Lowe, who also appeared on the hit series, was the subject of show Ghost Adventures when cadaver dogs picked up a scent in the deadly reptiles’ pen on Thursday.

According to TMZ, local Wynnewood, Oklahoma sheriff’s deputies attended the scene and were discussing excavating the remains safely if any were found.

Sources had told the site that Joe has said there are the ashes of four unnamed people buried on the property in memorial.

However these were people who chose to make the animal park their final resting place.

After a search, law enforcement determined that there were no human remains found in the suspected spot.

Instead, they uncovered some animal bones that reportedly appeared to be those of a small animal with a tail.

The case was closed and police left the premises.

His former business partner Jeff Lowe is now in charge, but a judge recently gave ownership to Joe’s rival and Big Cat Rescue boss Carole Baskin.

All involved shot to stardom earlier this year in Netflix documentary Tiger King, which detailed Joe’s affinity for dangerous animals, his personal life and his hatred for cat-lover Carole.

Joe, 57, is currently serving 22 years in prison for a murder-for-hire plot and violating federal wildlife laws.

Tiger King documented how he attempted to arrange the killing of Carole, who was critical of the way he treated his animals.

The “Cool Cats and Kittens” star was not harmed – though she wasn’t without her own controversy.

The popular documentary also looked at the disappearance and presumed death of Carole’s former husband Don Lewis, who vanished in 2002.

She became the subject of countless internet theories, though denies any involvement in Don’s tragic disappearance.
