The legal battle between Ms. Baskin, an animal rights activist, and Joseph Maldonado Passage, the former owner of the zoo by the side of the road, has lasted for more than seven years and on Netflix in particular.
For years, Carol Baskin has opposed the zoo that was run by the Joseph Maldonado Corridor, describing him as cruel and exploitative for the big cats that are kept there.
This part of the story is well known to millions of viewers of “Tiger King”, the Netflix series on the conflict between Mrs. Baskin, an animal rights activist, and Mr. Maldonado-Passage, also known as Joe. Exotic, a brilliant owner of a lion and tiger park in Wynnewood, Okla.
Tensions between the two sides have increased to the point that in 2019, Mr. Maldonado Passage was convicted of trying to kill Ms. Baskin.
