After skyrocketing to viral fame in the wake of Netflix's true crime docuseries Tiger King, Baskin — who was born in San Antonio — is back in the news, this time for winning the zoo formerly owned by her rival and convicted would-be murderer Joseph Maldonado-Passage — otherwise known as Joe Exotic — in court.
A federal judge handed down the order Monday, granting Baskin control over the G.W. Exotic Animal Memorial Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma, according to a report by Deadline.
Under the order, Jeff Lowe — who currently controls the zoo — has 120 days to vacate, along with all of the animals he's now housing at the property.
Meanwhile, according to Deadline, Maldonado-Passage — now serving a 22 year sentence for paying a hitman $3,000 to kill Baskin — is currently in a Dallas-Fort Worth medical center after possible exposure to the novel coronavirus.
