Big Cat Rescue also successfully proved to a US District judge in Oklahoma City that Exotic fraudulently transferred the zoo to his mother, Shirley M. Schreibvogel, in 2011 in an attempt to keep the zoo out of the reach of creditors if he lost the long-running legal battle with Baskin.

Exotic was convicted previous year of trying to hire a hitman to kill Baskin after ongoing feud of his abuse of animals.

As part of the judgement, Big Cat Rescue was also awarded control of a number of cars and cabins on the property.

While Maldonado-Passage is unlikely to be happy with the decision, Lowe remains nonplussed, with he and his wife Lauren telling United States gossip site TMZ that they had "long anticipated that the judge would eventually undo the 2016 land transfer".

The current owners have 120 days to vacate Greater Wynnewood Development Group, a.k.a. Tiger King Park. He is now serving a 22 year prison sentence.

The zoo had re-opened just last month and was renamed Tiger King Park following the craze and massive following from the Netflix documentary. He and his wife, Lauren, tell TMZ, "We have long anticipated that the judge would eventually undo the 2016 land transfer".

"All of Jeff's focus is on opening the new Tiger King Park in Thackerville, (Oklahoma), which should be opening in the next 120 days".

'Considering [Carole] spent approximately 2.5million chasing her 1million judgment, we congratulate her on her new acquisition of 16 acres in rural Oklahoma, ' the couple said.

They took one parting shot, saying, "The possibility of human remains being buried on this land should make her feel right at home".

Baskin, who owns an animal sanctuary in Florida, has for years been a vocal critic of Maldonado-Passage's animal park, a feud that escalated into a court battle.
