On the list of new faces on board for Tiger King 2 we didn’t expect to see Loose Women’s Jane Moore.
However, lo and behold, the follow up to Netflix’s most watched documentary ever has finally arrived today and there she is, grilling Carole Baskin’s husband Howard Baskin over the prospect of Joe Exotic being released from prison.
Tiger King 2 takes an even deeper dive into Joe’s 22 year prison sentence, after he was jailed for plotting to kill his big cat rival as well as shooting some of his own tigers dead, suggesting there is more to the case yet to be examined.
In the opening episode, Tiger King features Howard in a painfully awkward appearance on the ITV daytime show in which he shut down questions about Joe and the possibility of getting a presidential pardon from former President Donald Trump, subsequently releasing him from jail.
Obviously, that never happened, but even the idea was enough to rattle Howard.
‘I don’t want to talk about him being released from prison, he belongs in prison,’ he snapped.
Howard pointed to the backdrop of a huge tiger behind him and vented: ‘Forget about the whole business of hiring someone to kill Carole. This is someone… look at the tiger behind me. This is a man who walked up to five trusting tigers, who knew him, healthy tigers, and took a shotgun and blew their brains out.
‘If anyone doesn’t believe he belongs in jail for that, they have my sympathy.’
Jane continued to push further, but Howard interrupted, and simply sighed: ‘Could we move on to something else?’
Naturally, Tiger King features more surreal new information and revelations, including claims there was a historic plot to decapitate Joe.
It also takes a deeper dive into the disappearance of Carole’s ex-husband Don Lewis, exploring the possibility that he could well be alive and living in Costa Rica.
Tiger King 2 is available to stream on Netflix now.
