‘Tiger King’ Joe flew to Exotic Medical Facility; Prostate Cancer Treatment, ‘Host of Problems’


“Tiger King” Joe Exotic has been transferred to a North Carolina medical facility for federal inmates after he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and “many problems,” according to his lawyer.

Oklahoma zookeeper, real name Joseph Maldonado-Passage, flown in a private plane from Federal Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas to Federal Medical Center in Butner, North Carolina , His defense attorney John Phillips said in a statement.

Phillips said medical transfers will be made late this month, either late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

In July, a federal appeals court ruled that Maldonado — for the murder of a passage — was required to receive a lesser prison sentence for his role in the rental plot and violating federal wildlife laws.

Phillips Prison Medical Care “Not good and justice is slow. It’s a competition for life and liberty. No one wants any part.”

Maldonado-Passage was sentenced to 22 years in federal prison in January 2020 after he was accused of trying to hire two different men to kill Florida animal rights activist Carole Baskin. A three-judge panel of the 10th US Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver found that the trial court had separately considered those two crimes in calculating their prison sentence under the sentencing guidelines.

The Court of Appeals has held that the scope of their advisory sentence should be between 17 1/2 years and not less than 22 years and between 22 and 27 years in prison.

Netflix releases streaming sequel “Tiger King 2” on November 17 Phillips said Maldonado-Passage “has no access to watch Netflix and is in COVID Quarantine after transferring to prisons.”

“We hope to get into them soon,” Phillips said.

Baskin, the Netflix and production company of Tampa’s Big Cat Rescue, lost an attempt to prevent her and her husband from using a previously recorded video in the “Tiger King” sequel.

A federal magistrate judge issued the recommendation Friday, denying Baskins’s attempt to restrict the use of the piece as a precondition not allowed under the First Amendment.
