According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Joe Exotic (real name: Joseph Maldonado-Passage) is suing Lowe, the U.S. Federal Wildlife Service, the United State Department of Interior along with James Garrettson, Daniel Ashe and Allen Glover.
If you didn’t catch the docuseries, Exotic sold Lowe his G.W. Zoo before being sentenced. He was hit with 22 years in prison for attempting to pay a hitman to kill a rival and killing five tiger cubs.
Lowe changed the name of the zoo to Greater Wynnewood Animal Park. We won’t spoil it but Exotic and Lowe do not get along. Exotic put together the lawsuit while incarcerated at Grady County Jail in Oklahoma.
The lawsuit accuses the defendants of violating his civil rights including due process, selective enforcement, discrimination, right to post pond, false imprisonment, false arrest, perjury and entrapment.”
