Episode 4: The Carole Gun

Joe Exotic, a self-described ?gay, gun-carrying redneck with a mullet,? owned more tigers than anyone in the United States. He said that one of his guns was going to be used to kill Carole Baskin, who had been trying to shut him down for a decade. But instead of killing Carole, he hired a hitman to do it for him. And that decision may prove the undoing of not only the so-called Tiger King, but of the entire big cat industry.

Episode 1: No Law Against It

In 2009, Terry Thompson set loose 18 tigers, 17 lions, three cougars, and numerous other animals on the town of Zanesville, Ohio. Then, he took his own life. Restoring order was a harrowing operation for law enforcement that made national headlines. But what many people don?t realize is that there are thousands of potentially deadly big cats living in American homes, basements, and backyards. Zanesville wasn't an isolated event, just the worst example of a growing problem.
