Tiger King mostly focused on Joe Exotic and his zoo, but a number of other people wild animal world were included too, like Bhagavan "Doc" Antle, the owner of Myrtle Beach Safari, and his staff. But, according to Antle, what audiences saw in Tiger King was not an accurate depiction of his life and work.
Antle said in a statement to People about the release of his show:
There are two sides of why we have done this project. Tiger King has been interfering with our capacity to do our international conservation work by changing people’s views on saving tigers. They have given the false analysis that there are tigers in America that are in desperate need of help when the wild tiger is the one that really needs to be saved. They have dampened our ability to earn funds to save wild tigers.
