Who is Jeff Lowe on Tiger King?

The first time Jeff meets the man behind the Tiger King – Weird Joe – in 2015, when he was introduced as an investor to Joe, who was struggling financially due to his ongoing legal battle with Carole Baskin.

Not much is publicly known about Jeff’s background.

In the series, he revealed how he grew up around big cats because his grandfather was a circus owner.

Jeff got his first cat at age 15, and continues to raise mountain lions and tigers.

He went on to have children with his wife Lauren and they hired a nanny Masha Diduk to take care of their daughter.

On December 23, 2021, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma ended Lowe’s interest in endangered animals confiscated from their facility.

The court also recommended a default judgment against Tiger King LLC and Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park LLC, barring them from displaying the animals in the future.

Did Jeff Lowe Take Over Joe Exotic’s Zoo?

Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park started out as a sanctuary for endangered and exotic animals, and has faced legal problems from Baskin’s company, Big Cat Rescue.

In 2016, Joe Exotic transferred ownership of his big cat zoo to Jeff.

Lowe quickly increased the size of the animal park, adding different animals in addition to exotic cats. In 2019, he announced plans to open a new park in Oklahoma.

After closing briefly due to Covid-19 in 2020, Wynnewood was renamed Tiger King Park and reopened in May of the same year.

Ownership of the park was given to Baskin following a ruling from federal judge Scott Palk, ordering Lowe to leave the park and remove all animals.

On August 17, 2020, the USDA ordered the suspension of Lowe’s exhibition permit for 21 days. The next day, he permanently closed the park.

What did Joe Exotic say about Jeff Lowe?

Joe Exotic is said to have a disdain for his former business partner.

Speaking of Lowe after being released from prison, he said: “When I met Jeff lowe, I thought I could trust him, and oh my gosh, my *** hit the fans.

“I didn’t know the villa was rented and I didn’t know he was behind the payments to Ferrari and as soon as he had the zoo in his name Jeff and [his wife] Lauren was on the field. “

In January 2020, Joe was sentenced to 22 years in prison.

He was convicted for killing 5 tigers, trading in tiger cubs and falsifying wildlife records.

In November 2021, Joe announced a cancer diagnosis, adding that he had been transferred from a federal medical center in Fort Worth, Texas, to a federal medical center in Butner, North Carolina .
