    Though for sure that guy was going to be jetskiing with a Tiger. That...would have been bad ass.

    Quick google indicates that no Tiger has ever Jetski'd or waterski'd. Nor has a Tiger ever gone over Niagara Falls. Not that I'm trying to give these freaks any ideas or anything.

    But some animals have gone over the falls. In 1827, William Forsyth, a hotel owner, bought a schooner called Michigan. He filled it with a buffalo, two small bears, two raccoons, and a dog. Some reports say two foxes, fifteen geese, and an eagle were also included. After the schooner was sent adrift, the two bears jumped free and swam to Goat Island. The rest of the animals, with the exception of the geese, perished going over the Falls.

    was Travis' death an accident or suicide?

    The one guy talked about how Travis didn't know a Ruger could have a bullet in the chamber, but it wasn't clear to me if that was related to the death.

    What was sorta eerie was I was watching it the 1st and 2nd episodes for the second time with my GF ( her first time) who didn’t know Travis died. She looks at me and says to me “how come Travis is talking about himself like in past tense”. “Did he quit or leave the zoo later on?”

    Watched it, my premium takeaways:
    1) F*** Carole Baskin
    2) F*** Jeff Lowe
    3) Joe Exotic had a good thing going until the name/trademark infringement of Big Cat Rescue. This move was totally unnecessary and it put him in a financial hole that he could never recover from... which in turn led to Jeff Lowe entering the picture and bailing him out in exchange for ownership. Obviously Joe Exotic is not the type of guy who can work for someone else.
    4) Joe Exotic's Presidential/Gubernatorial runs also became his undoing... as he took his eye off the zoo and everything fell apart.
    5) It's astonishing that a jury found Joe Exotic guilty of murder for hire given all the ties between Jeff Lowe and the hitman. Very weak evidence, although Joe Exotic's behavior became so bizarre and threatening that the prosecutor had to bring the case.

    Overall it was a refreshing/fun first 3-4 episodes then got dark and upsetting. So many unforced errors by Joe! When you taste a little bit of success, you can't get the big head and then get lazy/distracted. Joe Exotic is a prime example of that.

    GOOD DAY

    Not a State issue, that's a County issue.

    I enjoyed how none of the main characters were good guys. Just various levels of bad guy.

    Crazy that some crazy lady decided to take part in this documentary after getting away with murder for nearly 30 years.
