‘Tiger King’ Joe Exotic says he has ‘aggressive cancer’

Oklahoma City (AP) — The man known as “Tiger King,” who rose to fame in a Netflix documentary following his conviction for trying to hire someone to kill an animal rights activist, says that he has cancer.

Joe Exotic, who is lodged in a federal prison in Fort Worth, Texas, wrote in a Twitter post on Wednesday, “It is with a sad face that I have to tell you…that my prostate biopsy has come back with an invasive cancer.” “

The white mullet-wearing former Oklahoma zookeeper, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, is known for his abusive-laden rants on YouTube and a failed 2018 Oklahoma gubernatorial campaign.

He was featured prominently in the popular documentary “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness”.

Carole Baskin, who runs a rescue sanctuary for big cats in Florida, was sentenced in 2020 to 22 years in prison after pleading guilty to a failed conspiracy to violate federal wildlife laws and a targeted murder.

In July, a three-judge panel for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit in Denver ordered Maldonado-Passage to sue for a short period, finding that the trial court counted his prison term for two convicts. treated differently.

The panel said the extent of its advisory sentence should be between 17 1/2 years and just 22 years, and not just between 22 years and 27 years in prison used by the trial court.

Maldonado-Passage wrote on Twitter in prayer and for “the world to be my voice”, saying there is no evidence he committed the crime.
