Life for all of us has been put on pause since the Coronavirus has been sweeping everyone worldwide. But, something you don’t need to pause is keeping up with your favorite shows, movies, documentaries and much, much more. With Netflix offering all and many of these to us, many have been discovering interesting shows and movies while being stuck at home.

“Tiger King” is a show that has been the talk of the media since the quarantine. “Tiger King” is a crazy, chaotic crime series that Netflix released on March 20th, 2020.

Joe Exotic, also known as Joseph Maldonado-Passage is a 57-year-old man who runs Zoo called the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park in Wynnewood Oklahoma. He buys, sells and shows off many species of tigers and big cats.

It all seems great from the outside, but, as the viewer learns about Joe’s life and more, the public begins to see something quite terrifying. As more characters come into the show, it almost seems fictional, but in fact, this is a true story and was a large crime case. 

According to Netflix, “Tiger King” is an “exploration of big cat breeding and its bizarre underworld, populated by eccentric characters.”  So, during these times at home, will you delve into this story? Will you learn about Joe Exotic and his “wild” life?

Check it out and more at Netflix.com. Although Netflix is also a great way to escape reality and the hardships of these times, it is not the answer to all problems. See more stories on Pantherbook for ways to stay active and healthy during our time in Quarantine.
