Joe Exotic is not going to let his longtime nemesis, Carole Baskin, get away with taking his Tiger Zoo, and is preparing to file an appeal in the legal decision giving her ownership of the land.

In a statement, issued by Joe's team, the 'Tiger King' star is already preparing to file an appeal in the shocking decision giving the ownership of his Tiger Zoo to someone he hates, Carole Baskin.

"It’s with heavy hearts we must officially address the court ruling that transferred ownership of the G.W. Zoo to none other than Carol Baskin. Because of the amount of press the story has received, we feel a timely response is necessary," the message began.

They continued, "This ruling is yet another emotional blow to an already fragile Joe, who has spent the past 3 straight months in solitary confinement. He has been completely unable to defend himself."

Although, his team claims he is in a very weakened state due to his confinement in prison...the lawyers involved in his case are working as we speak to file an appeal in the decision giving ownership to Carole Baskin.

"As hard as this news is, we refuse to accept defeat. Even as we type this message, Joe’s legal team is filing appeals and his social media/PR team are rallying public support,' the team said.

As for how Baskin got her hands on the zoo -- Carole won a $1 Million judgment against Joe and his mom many years ago, over a trademark dispute. According to the legal decision, a judge said Joe's transfer of his zoo to Jeff Lowe and his mother was fraudulent.

So, the judge is granting control of the land to Baskin to satisfy the judgment amount that is still owed.

The 'Tiger King' also addressed the current situation going on in our country, following the killing of George Floyd.

"There is so much sadness and injustice in the world. We believe strongly, as Joe does, that standing up for what is right is always worthwhile. Our whole team prays for justice for George Floyd’s family as well as an end to systemic racism in America," he said.

They continued, "Our single goal is Joe’s Freedom. Joe cannot fight something from solitary confinement imposed to suppress his rights. We’ve known Carole was going to prevail. We pray for the safety of the Tigers."
