On sixteen acres of dry Oklahoma prairie, Joe, whose last name is clearly not exotic, but that is what he calls himself, scratched out a living as a roadside wildlife attraction.

He was an eccentric local celebrity who even handed out condoms with his face printed on them. He had his own brand of crazy, but somewhere he pushed it too far. Find out how a love of animals turned to hate and murderous revenge.Listen here: https://open.spotify.com/show/5z8vxzseV4vy0wZpQyYrXa?si=07_J-YKrSxaO4Wc1bvY9MA
