A federal appeals court has dismissed a 22-year prison on Joseph Maldonado-Passage, better known as Joe Exotic, a zookeeper known for his association with big cats.
The ruling does not mean that Exotic will walk free as the 10th District Court in Denver has upheld his conviction. Instead, the federal court in Oklahoma will reportedly sentence him, reported the Associated Press.

Exotic was alleged to be involved in a plot to kill off rival big cat activist Carole Baskin in 2019.
Impact On Tiger King Crypto, Dogecoin: TKING, a cryptocurrency that Exotic claimed to have launched, has received the backing of YouTuber Matt Wallace.
This led the gains in TKING to surpass meme-pack leader Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) last week after Wallace said he was purchasing the coin “fast” and that it made up one of his three largest cryptocurrency holdings.
When season 2 of Tiger King happens millions of people are going to search the words Tiger King.
Like it or not… $TKing will likely experience one of the biggest spikes in cryptocurency history.
