Joe Maldonado Passage, a/k/a/ Joe Exotic was the biggest name in big cat breeding in the roadside attraction business in America. PETA and Big Cat Rescue helped to bring him down.

Brittany Peet, PETA's director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement talks to Emil Guillermo about how she came to know Joe Passage, and how PETA helped rescue some of the animals he imprisoned.

Peet still doesn't know why Joe Exotic asked her to testify on his behalf at trial. Peet said she told the whole unsavory truth about what she saw at Exotic's Oklahoma operation.
