Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

We guess we know how season 2 of Netflix’s “Tiger King” saga is going to be about. [Editor’s note: this is a joke, there is no season 2 of “Tiger King” in the works. Yet.]

An Oklahoma judge has ruled in favor of Big Cat Rescue head Carole Baskin, awarding her control Joe Exotic‘s 16-acre animal park in Garvin County, Oklahoma including its array of big cats.

Included in this particular judgement are cabins and vehicles associated with The Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park, which is sometimes called the G.W. Zoo and formerly the Garold Wayne Exotic Animal Memorial Park.

The order specifies that GWDC must “vacate the Zoo Land premises within 120 days of service of this Order …Vacation of premises shall also require removal of all zoo animals from the Zoo Land.”

Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage aka Joe Exotic is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence on charges of attempting to hire a hitman to kill Carole Baskin, as well as multiple counts of animal abuse.

According to CNN, Jeff Lowe‘s (current owner of GWDC) attorney Walter Mosley said the judgment was not unexpected. “We anticipated Carol Baskin getting the title to the former park that once belonged to Joe Exotic, and we did not challenge her attempts to do so. All of Jeff’s focus is on opening the new Tiger King Park in Thackerville, (Oklahoma), which should be opening in the next 120 days.”

Howard Baskin, Carole’s third husband, offered this statement on Big Cat Rescue’s official Facebook page about the decision:

What Will Happen to the Animals?

Oklahoma JudgmentsOn June 1, 2020 the federal court in Oklahoma issued a judgment against an entity controlled by Jeff Lowe based in part on what the judge described as “willfully failed to comply” with one previous court order and “other failures to obey or respond to the Court’s orders in this case.” The ruling requires the entity to vacate the property within 120 days of service of the judgment, including removing the animals. In an Agreed Judgment in August 2019 Shirley Schreibvogel acknowledged her role in multiple fraudulent transfers some of which involved the entity controlled by Mr. Lowe. Over a year ago Mr. Lowe announced plans to move the animals to a location in Thackerville, OK that he has been constructing and he claims will be a better facility. He recently stated that he had funds to complete the zoo and a contractor who could complete it in a few months.If the need arises to make other plans to place the animals in new homes, Big Cat Rescue and the animal welfare organizations that have previously successfully placed big cats from large facilities in new homes stand ready to assist.Below are full copies of the court documents which speak for themselves. We are not posting any further comments at this time.https://bigcatrescue.org/agreed/

Also, fun fact- Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister now CONFIRMS that the will of Baskin’s second husband, Don Lewis, is a forgery.

“They called in some experts to say that the will was a forgery and I had already told them that two months ago,” Chronister said while speaking with 10 Tampa Bay. “They had two experts deem it 100% a forgery.  There’s no recourse. A judge deemed it valid. So the civil side of it, with the execution of the will [and] dispersement of the funds is one thing. But then you have the criminal side which is unable to prosecute.”
