Surviving Joe Exotic

Watch Online






      This documentary special will feature one of the last interviews with Joe Exotic, with never-before-seen footage shot in 2018 (months before he was jailed on murder-for-hire charges) originally recorded at his zoo for Animal Planet's Wolves and Warriors. This special is less about the exotic animal zookeeper from Oklahoma and more about the animals held at his Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park.  Surviving Joe Exotic aims to put more of a spotlight on these creatures, such as visually impaired tigers Kryxis and Kadira, whose vision was surgically restored at the Exotic Feline Rescue Center in Indiana after being rescued from Exotic's zoo. It will also share stories about the animals who found new homes, like Chobe and Kariba, lions left traumatized by the pain of inbreeding who were relocated to the Wildcat Ridge Sanctuary in Oregon.
