Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, is a mullet-sporting, gun-toting polygamist and country western singer who presides over an Oklahoma roadside zoo filled with exotic cats like lions and tigers. It really is just as crazy as it sounds!
Still, reality is often crazier than fiction and Mr. Exotic is living proof of that. He’s currently serving a 22-year-sentence for plotting to murder a rival in the animal protection racket. You can catch all of this on Netflix. Seeing is believing.
