Joe Exotic’s Niece Says He Was ‘100 Times Worse’ Than Series Made Him Seem


The Tiger King’s niece, wants you to know that the Joe Exotic you saw in the shocking documentary, doesn’t come close to the “evil persona” he was in real life. Chealsi Putman, who worked for the Tiger King from 1999 to 2017, told Mail Online, “Over the years there must have been at least 10 tiger cubs that he froze. I have no idea what happened to them, they would just disappear.” Putman says the big cat breeder would illegally sell baby tigers and was “one hundred times worse,” than what Netflix subscribers say in the seven episode series.
