"Tiger King," Season 2 is out on Netflix. But there would be no story if it weren't for the lawsuits filed by PETA. Brittany Peet of PETA's Captured Animal Legal Enforcement division tells Emil Guillermo how lawsuits using the Endangered Species Act brought about aggressive enforcement from the feds. It's the reason more than 350 animals have been rescued, the exotic wildlife business has hit rock bottom, and Joe Exotic remains behind bars. 

Peet updates us from her last appearance on the podcast in the summer. 

And she tells us about what happened to the animals as Joe Exotic's operation was shutdown.


The PETA Podcast

PETA, the world's largest animal rights organization, is 6.5 million strong and growing. This is the place to find out why. Hear from insiders, thought leaders, activists, investigators, politicians, and others why animals need more than kindness—they have the right not to be abused or exploited in any way.
