                                  The eccentric big cat owner rose to fame after the release of the Netflix series, Tiger King.

                                  If you still haven't watched it, what are you doing?

                                  Tiger King is perhaps the most binge-able show Netflix has ever graced our screens with.

                                  It gives us an eye-opening insight into the captivity of big cats here in America.

                                  The 7-part series retells the story of a war between a very flamboyant tiger owner named Joe Exotic and his enemy, a Florida-based animal activist named Carole Baskin.

                                  But it isn't just about the tigers and lions...

                                  It is mostly about the scandalous lives of these people in America's big cat community... And we could not?get enough.

                                  Who knew there was such a large cult of exotic animal hoarders in the US?

                                  And who knew there was so much rivalry and hate?

                                  There was a lot of drama in the life of Joe Exotic...

                                  And the big cat owner seemed to really have it in for Carole Baskin, with footage showing him repeatedly wishing death upon her and describing how he would like to kill her after she tried to expose his zoo. Yikes.

                                  But people seem to be forgetting that this is based on real-life...

                                  And when Joe's life gradually began to spiral out of control, he landed himself into some deep trouble.

                                  Joe is an openly gay man...

                                  But, after he married both John Finlay and Travis Maldonado in a 3-way ceremony, both of his husbands gradually deteriorated with drug use and mental health problems. Travis tragically took his own life after he made claims that he wasn't at all gay, and Joe had simply hoodwinked him by fueling his addictions.

                                  And after this marriage tragically fell apart...

                                  Joe himself fell into a downward spiral and his obsession with Carole and her missing ex-husband grew even bigger.

                                  And last year, things took a turn for the worst.

                                  via: Netflix

                                  Joe was sentenced to twenty-two years in prison.

                                  His first charge was for conspiracy to murder.

                                  He allegedly hired a hitman to take Carole out whilst she was biking down a deserted bike path before the FBI became involved and thus foiled his dangerous plan.

                                  And the second was for animal cruelty.

                                  Though his treatment of his tigers has always been questionable, it was found that Joe had killed several of the older big cats to make room for new arrivals at his animal park.

                                  Most of us believe that this sentencing is more than reasonable.

                                  Despite how cooky he comes across as on camera, it's undeniable that Joe belongs behind bars for his appalling behavior to both his staff and his innocent animals.

                                  But others aren't too convinced.

                                  Evidently hoodwinked by his "loveable" on-screen persona, many people have been taking to Twitter to protest his sentencing.

                                  The hashtag #freejoeexotic was even trending for a while.

                                  I've lost all faith in humanity.

                                  So many people are set on seeing Exotic walk free...

                                  Simply because he makes good television.

                                  But what people don't realize is, that the good television is at a cost.

                                  The cost of the animals.

                                  One lioness who was rescued from Joe Exotic's back in 2018 has recently undergone surgery.

                                  The surgery came after years of suffering.

                                  Chobe the lioness was rescued from the facility in 2018 and now lives at the WildCat Ridge Sanctuary in Oregon.

                                  Staff at her new home noticed she was not eating and sent her to get checked out.

                                  The big cat was sent for a scan and results revealed that she had a distended uterus.

                                  An issue caused by an infection.

                                  As a result, Chobe had her uterus and ovaries removed by doctors at Oregon State University's veterinary hospital.

                                  The surgery performed is a similar one to spaying a domestic cat.

                                  A distended uterus is most common in older cats who have been in heat in the previous four weeks and can cause complications due to a build-up of toxins in the bloodstream, which affect the kidney's ability to retain fluid.

                                  The Daily Mail?reported that?Dr Katy Townsend, an associate professor of small animal surgery in the Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine who operated on Chobe said: 'Essentially it's just like doing a cat spay, but on a mega scale.

                                  "Surgery went really well. We were able to cleanly get everything out in a short amount of time. We expect her to make a full recovery from this."

                                  Sanctuary executive assistant Ian Ford said that Chobe is a 'mismatch of genetics' something caused by inbreeding at?Joe Exotic's facility.

                                  He also added that looked forward to her recovering, "'Just having her roll around in the grass with her buddy Kariba and back to getting her paws up in the air and just enjoying herself.

                                  'We're hoping that this surgery is going to make sure that everything's ok for her, and she can get back to just living her life in peace and happiness, which is the only thing that we want for all of our residents.'

                                  We hope Chobe makes a speedy recovery!
