Jeff Lowe: Jeff Lowe Had 68 Big Cats Seized From the Gw Zoo!
Tiger King, on Netflix, was full of wild, obsessive, and sometimes weirdly erotic people. One was Joe Exotic, who used to be the Tiger King. When he was arrested and his business went to his successor, Jeff Lowe, the world met a new kind of cat royalty. Joe and the cats at the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park turned out to be just as wild as Lowe and his wife, Lauren. But where is Jeff Lowe now, and what has happened to the park since he took over?
Where is Jeff Lowe Now?
We can tell you that he is no longer at the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park (GW Zoo). TMZ says Lowe was kicked out of the park in October 2021 because he hadn’t paid his rent or fixed any damage. Lauren had asked for an extra 30-day extension, but it was turned down.
It is said that the new Tiger King owes more than $10,000 in rent and other damages, and he is also mostly without tigers right now.
Jeff Lowe Had 68 Big Cats Seized From the Gw Zoo.
Since Joe Exotic went to jail in 2018, when Lowe took over the GW Zoo from him, he has had a lot of trouble. The eviction is just the latest. A press release from the U.S. Department of Justice says that in May of 2021, federal agents went to the Lowes and took 68 exotic cats. Various lions, tigers, lion-tiger hybrids, and a jaguar were taken during the raid.
People from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service checked on the cats three times before they were taken away. Still, none of the inspections could answer some of the agencies’ concerns about the cats’ well-being. After not following government suggestions for months to give these animals enough food, shelter, and veterinary care, they had no choice but to take them to a place where they would be safe and taken care of.
All of these things happened after another wrong decision by a federal judge in May 2020. In that case, the judge told Lowe to give control of the GW Zoo to Carole Baskin of Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Fla., who was said to be his and Joe Exotic’s enemy. ABC Action News says this decision was made because of Joe Exotic’s fraud a few years ago.
It looks like the property was given illegally to Joe Exotic’s mother for some crazy reason. Lowe eventually gave the property back, but it was two months later, according to People, and he allegedly took most of the zoo’s cats to a park he owned in Thackerville, Oklahoma.
Jeff Lowe and His Wife, Lauren, Received a Dui Barely a Month After the Cats Were Seized
People say Lowe and his wife were arrested in Oklahoma City for drunk driving soon after federal agents came to get their cats. Lauren was first driving the couple’s white Range Rover, but after she hit a curb while trying to leave a parking lot, she let her husband take the wheel. Lowe didn’t seem to do much better behind the wheel since he was pulled over for switching lanes against the law.
Police reports say both sides slurred their words and smelled like they had been drinking. On top of that, Lowe failed both field sobriety and breathalyzer tests. His blood alcohol level was a shocking 0.18, which is more than twice the legal limit in Oklahoma, which is 0.08 percent.
If you watched the first Tiger King series and want to know what happened to the Lowes, Season 2 of Tiger King will be on Netflix on November 17, 2021.
