Police were called to the scene of the “ Tiger King ” zoo amid allegations that human remains were found in an alligator enclosure.
The Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness was released on Netflix earlier this year and became a huge hit with fans from all over the world.
Viewers watched as ‘Tiger King’ himself, Joe Exotic was thrown behind bars for two counts of murder for hire amid a failed, and alleged, assassination plot against animal rights activist, Carole Baskin.
However, new evidence has been suggested on Friday that human remains may have been uncovered on the grounds of the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park (a.k.a. G. W. Zoo) in Wynnewood, Oklahoma.
TMZ reports that local police have reason to believe human remains are buried under an alligator pen at the controversial zoo – which is currently owned by Jeff Lowe.
The outlet claims police dogs sniffed out “what their trainer believes are human remains” on Thursday.
The news source adds: “The local sheriff’s deputies are on the scene right now, and we’re told they’re currently discussing a method to determine if remains are there … and, if so, how to dig them up safely.”
The sniffer dogs were reportedly taken to the zoo as part of a TV show called Ghose Adventures, hosted by paranormal investigator Zak Bagans.
A source told TMZ that the human remains could be cremated remains of people who wanted to be buried at the site.
They said: ”Joe has said there are ashes of 4 people buried on the property as a memorial.”
They clarified the alleged remains are of: “people who chose to make the zoo their final resting place.”
Tiger King showed Joe lose his zoo to Jeff after he was seemingly swindled out of the property.
Meanwhile, a judge recently ruled that animal rights activist Carole should have ownership of the zoo following her own lengthy legal battle against Joe.
