WYNNEWOOD, Okla. — The zoo seen in the Netflix hit docuseries "Tiger king" is closing effective immediately.

Jeff Lowe, owner of Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park, posted on the park's Facebook page that he forfeited his USDA exhibitor's license.

Lowe said the USDA "folded to the pressures of PETA and continue to make false accusations." The post said his new park will be a private film set for "Tiger King" related TV content.
