A unique, behind-the-scenes look at Exotic's live web show, now the subject of a controversial Netflix series

ALTUS, Okla. - EntSun -- Jack A. Warren, a member of the camera crew on Joe Exotic's live web show, announced today his upcoming book, "I Saw a Tiger", which recounts the inside story of the ill-fated show and its star. It offers a unique, behind-the-scenes look at the experience of living and working at the private zoo where Joe Exotic bred his tigers. Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage, is the subject of the controversial Netflix series "Tiger King", which deals with Exotic's arrest and conviction of federal murder-for-hire charges.

"There's been a lot of interest in Joe Exotic and his story, but there's a lot more to it than what's been shown, despite all the media attention," explained Warren. "There are a lot of compelling, if troubled people in the story. They inhabit a chaotic and shady world in the zoo. Then, there are the animals themselves. My book opens up all these subjects to give the reader a unique, insider's perspective on the entire situation."
