This couldn’t have come at a better time considering I finished “Tiger King” on Netlfix last night. Do you think Joe was able to watch this from prison and that’s whats sparked this well timed lawsuit?
Joe is suing from prison and he’s going after a number of people for quite a lot of money. He’s locked up after being accused of murder for hire and he’s saying he was falsely arrested and the victim of malicious prosecution and discrimination. He wants money for that. He’s also suing the U.S. Department of Interior and the U.S. Federal Wildlife Service for placing the “generic tiger” on the endangered species list. Joe claims they did that to put people like him out of business. Well his exact words were, “stealing my property and promoting an animal rights agenda.”
According to the suit, he wants $78,840,000 for the loss of his personal property and 18 years’ worth of his work with tigers for this.
He’s also going after his former business partner Jeff Lowe (who I think deserves to be behind bars more than Joe) for lying and planting evidence against him. He basically said that this was all the cause of his mothers death. He wants an additional $15 min for that.
Reach for the stars, Joe.
But for real, we have to get a season 2….right?
