Lawyer Eric Love, who represents jailed Tiger King star Joe Exotic, says he plans to travel to the White House to ask President Donald Trump to pardon his client, TMZ reports. The legal team reportedly plans to travel to the capitol in a bus painted with the words, "President Trump Please Pardon Joe Exotic." Very subtle indeed. In related news, Exotic's old business partner Jeff Lowe believes he's still being targeted by the inmate, claiming that Exotic sent a helicopter to fly over his Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park Sunday afternoon in Oklahoma, spooking the animals. Sources close to Lowe say the helicopter violated restricted air space and even hovered right over the zoo's gift shop. Lowe's team also claim that a tail number from the chopper matches a helicopter used by Exotic's legal team in a video. The source tells the outlet that Lowe's wife Lauren reported the incident to the FAA. Exotic's team denies the allegation, but Exotic reportedly used the same tactic against Carole Baskin's Big Cat Rescue park in Florida.
