GAY TIGER-KILLER LOSES HIS ZOO: The (Non-Riot) Story of the Day

photo credit: Santa Rosa County Jail

As the World’s Only Superpower burns to the ground over the provably mistaken belief that white cops are the biggest danger to black males, we pause to cover a completely wacky and unrelated story before diving into the endlessly depressing live-action unspooling of the United States of America. This story, and this story alone this week, will have nothing to do with the ongoing riots.

The methed-out-looking guy with the frosted mullet and 70s-porn-star mustache you see in the picture there was born Joseph Allen Schriebvogel on a humble Kansas farm in 1963. Five years later, he was raped by an older boy, which may or may not have set him on a path toward lifelong homosexuality; all we’re saying is that it is a little weird that so many adult homos claim to have been molested or raped by older members of the same sex while they were children—last we checked, rates of self-reported same-sex molestation among adult gays were twenty times higher than those reported by people who turned out to be perfectly healthy and normal grownups. What’s even more interesting than this statistical disparity is that you’re not even allowed to mention it, or mobs of gays—who are so joyless at this point, they really should be referred to as “angries” rather than “gays”—will burn down your house with rainbow-colored flamethrowers.

Due to the fact that he married another dude, Schriebvogel’s legal name is now Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage, but most people know him as Joe Exotic, and boy, is he a character! His first known gay partner died of AIDS in 2001. Another gay partner of his held a gun to his head claimed that Joe also threatened to kill him, and ultimately wound up going to prison for murder and child molestation. Another gay partner of Joe’s was murdered by someone else on Joe’s property. Joe is a one-time police chief of Eastvale, TX who claims he attempted suicide by crashing his police car into a bridge after his parents outed him as a peter-puffer. He is an aspiring country-and-western artist who allegedly pays other people to record music and then, without telling them, stars in the videos as if he was actually the singer.

Since the late 1990s, Joe has managed the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park in Oklahoma, which has gained global notoriety for its collection of giant cats.

And, since the exotic-animal-park industry appears to be highly competitive, Joe has been involved in a life-or-death struggle with Carole Baskin, who owns a Florida animal sanctuary called Big Cat Rescue, for nigh on a decade. In 2011, Baskin first locked horns with Exotic when she protested his use of tiger cubs in public presentations. In retaliation, Joe lifted her “Big Cat Rescue” brand name and slapped it all over several of his products, leading her to successfully sue him.

In the late 1990s, Baskin’s husband had gone missing; he was formally declared dead in 2002. People magazine ran a story about speculation that Baskin had murdered her husband. It’s a scab that Joe Exotic has been picking since their feud erupted—he even recorded a country video called “Here Kitty Kitty” that depicts a super-plump Baskin feeding her dead husband’s flesh to a caged lion as Joe looks on disapprovingly in a cowboy hat and priest’s collar. That boy is fierce!

Problem is, in 2018 he was popped on federal felony charges for killing five tigers and for attempting to hire hitmen to kill Carole Baskin. Joe Exotic is currently serving a 22-year sentence. His ongoing feud with Baskin was chronicled in the Netflix series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness.

Last week a federal judge appeared to hammer the final nail in this highly entertaining feud’s coffin, awarding Joe’s zoo to Baskin. Now Ms. Baskin has two big-cat sanctuaries and he’s in a cage. The only way that Joe could possibly win now is to escape from prison and personally murder Baskin—not that we’re encouraging such actions, because they would clearly be illegal. But knowing the level of Joe Exotic’s vindictiveness, we wouldn’t put it past him. Sitting there in his cell, he has nothing to do but plot his revenge.

    NF or Amazon has a documentary on this asshole, complete with his weird assed “wives”, his groupies and his big cats. He operated out of Wynnewood, Oklahoma, an off the road rural haven where folks like him can usually live in peace, except for his feuds with other large cat fanciers.

    It’s a damned shame, at least IMHO, that anyone is permitted to own and/or raise these animals because with shrinking populations they should be acclimated and returned to the wilds of India and Nepal where they belong.

    The wild ones are all endangered because, as you might have guessed, the friggin’ chinese men, all of whom no doubt have peckers the size of a runt Chihuahua puppy at birth, think that if they grind up a dried tiger penis, put it in soup (bat) or add it to their tea, that they will develop like normal men and be more virile. Just what China needs, of course. I wish they’d invent another virus to help them with that goal….something really nasty and then circulate it through the Chinese government while slipping a dose of it to Little Un, God of the NORKS.

    Anyway, Joe and Carol are both convicts and other than the sick, twisted and morbid fascination that the public has enjoyed by watching Tiger King on TV, I’m not sure that anyone in government has moved forward to try and put an end to this silly BS of keeping tigers and other big cats in hill billy zoos. I got through 1 episode and had to quit, it’s just too damned offensive.

    Someone should recommend to Congress that it come up with some statutes that prevent this kind of thing but those guys are too busy, prepping to lay themselves on the dirty streets of their constituents with their hands cuffed and mugs muffed while they cry and scream how much they love the negro, after which all of them will strip into loin cloths and begin a ceremonial black foot washing campaign, starting with T. D. Jakes, Sharpton, Jackson and Obama and continuing on until they have run through a few thousand women the size of Oprah with the breathe of S.J. Lee and the mentality of MaxiPad Waters. Screw the lions and tigers, watching Congress grovel will be far more entertaining.

    Thanks, Gerald! Now I know everything I never cared to know about that show, without having to waste my time actually watching it. You have done a great service.

    Nice read. The only way to preserve some species is to put them in a zoo. I hunted in South Africa in 2002. I hunted on two separate fenced in properties . One was on open planes so vast I recall only seeing the fence going into it. The other was (as I recall) approximately 13 square miles of rugged terrain and plenty of wildlife. Nobody there was shooting a fish in a barrel. On all four sides of this enclosure were crop fields, largely sugar cane. I was advised that if this enclosed and managed hunting area was not maintained, the land would be razed, all the animals killed off and crops would be grown. The managed hunting was what kept this are with many black wildebeest, countless African deer, hippos, a few rhinos, crocs, etc. alive in replenishable quantities. The few times I have tried to explain the managed hunting areas to a liberal it turned into a divide by zero effort.

    In short, if you release these tigers to the wild, they will shortly get hunted and killed off, probably.

    Snakepit, I have hunted all of my life and my #1 bucket list item was to hunt in Africa. When I was in my prime I fancied myself trudging through that rough country with a PH, a tracker with a properly stoked .375 HH or a .416 Rigby looking for a Cape buffalo Bull. I also wanted a lion and some plains game but the fates had other plans.

    Instead of hunting the exotics I read several of Robert Roark’s stories, a little Hemingway and of course Jim Corbett’s tales of hunting dangerous cats in Northern India and Nepal. It’s hard to imagine those times and if you love hunting, they are intoxicating.

    To me, the tiger thing is troublesome. Regardless of where they’re located, most of the time they avoid humans but a few do turn into man eaters and kill people in isolated areas. Siberia and the forests of Russia are full of them with limited hunting. India says that it’s working overtime to police its large national forest parks to protect tigers and I do know that India does engage in tiger restoration programs and I, like so many others who hunt, feel that putting any large carnivore in a cage or, as in the case of Joe and Carol, raising them in small enclosures and turning them into hill billy zoo curiosities, all the name of conservation, should not be allowed outside of the purview of sponsored programs that aim toward restoration and their acclimation to the wild.

    But all of that kind of thing appears to be legal and people refuse to use their heads, viz, Tippi Hedren, Melanie Griffith’s mother is around 90 years old and she lives with a dozen or more big cats. Oh well…..

    @Snakepit – Thank you.

    He seems only moderately eccentric to me when compared to other gays that I’ve known.

    I had a rig electrician once from South Texas that had 2 Bengal Tigers as pets, kept them on his farm. Guy was covered with scars. Takes a special kind of person to do that – he wasn’t gay like Joe, just conventionally crazy.

    One of my neighbors decided to be homosexual after another neighbor raped him.

    The entire exotic animal import or breeding thing in America can/should be/have been dealt with by the Congresssional Professionals we kept voting for. Over and over. It’s why Florida is enjoying totally non-native f*cking Pythons having copious amounts of cute little squiggle worms devouring their ecosystem.
