In the first seven episodes, viewers are introduced to the literally wild world of Joe Exotic, an Oklahoma zookeeper. He is depicted going about his crime and passion-filled life fearlessly. Exotic even killed tigers for fun. ‘Tiger King’ focuses on how Exotic developed a rivalry with Carole Baskin, the founder of Big Cat Rescue Wildlife Sanctuary. The series depicts the ups and downs of Exotic’s career. It ends with Exotic going to prison.
