Officials seized 68 tigers, lions, hybrids and a jaguar from the Oklahoma zoo shown in the TV series.

During government inspections, the Lowes were repeatedly cited “for failing to provide the animals with adequate or timely veterinary care, appropriate nutrition, and shelter that protects them from inclement weather and is of sufficient size to allow them to engage in normal behaviour”, according to a news release from the Justice Department.
