Everyone has heard the news stating that Joe Exotic's old zoo now run by Jeff Lowe and called Greater Wynwood Exotic Animal Park lost their USDA permit and has been shut down. That's not quite the case. 

UPDATE 08/23/2020 The suspension was because of lack of proper veterinary care. The number of animals at the zoo has also exploded. 


August 17, 2020 the USDA suspended the permit of Jeffrey Lowe, Greater Wynnwood Exotic Animal Park, customer number 332646, certificate number 73-C-0230. It's suspended for 21 days. His license is active again in 21 days if he wants to have a USDA permit. Jeff Lowe has responded that he doesn't want the permit.

You only need a USDA exhibitor permit if you want to let the public view the animals for free or for money. Jeff Lowe doesn't need a USDA permit to possess those animals in that city, county, state. He stated he will close the public viewing part of the business but continue as a place for "Tiger King" production. This is a round about way to continue to make money with the animals. Wildlife Waystation did this for years with "volunteer day" which was actually "zoo day." Volunteers would donate money so they could "volunteer" to care for the animals. Volunteers interacted with animals and did photo ops. 

There are many places that no longer have a USDA permit and still have animals. This is not a good situation for animals. My USDA inspector stated in another case totally unrelated to this case that USDA can no longer visit or inspect once the place no longer has a USDA permit. USDA's only power is to take away a USDA permit. It's very difficult for them to force someone to do anything. Now USDA has no oversight over this zoo whatsoever. 

Below is the zoo's inventory list, list of inspections and last two inspection reports.
