UPDATE:

TMZ has updated their original story, and it appears as if the remains are not human. They state, “Law enforcement sources tell us no human remains were found. They did uncover some animal bones that appear to be the skeleton of small animal with a tail. Law enforcement considers the matter closed, and have left the premises.”

Original Story:

TMZ is reporting that human remains have been discovered at the Tiger King zoo.

As the outlet states, “Something’s rotten at the original ‘Tiger King’ zoo — 2 cadaver dogs have zeroed in on what their trainer believes are human remains. We’re told the dogs were brought in as part of an episode of Zak Bagan’s ‘Ghost Adventures.'”

They add that dogs picked up the scent in the alligator pit, and local sheriff’s deputies are currently on the scene right now to investigate and determine how to dig them up safely.

TMZ also makes another revelation: According to their sources, “Joe has said there are ashes of 4 people buried on the property as a memorial — people who chose to make the zoo their final resting place. The sources did not identify who was buried there.”

The Tiger King zoo, located in Oklahoma, is now owned by Jeff Lowe. It was previously owned by Joe Exotic before he got convicted and was arrested for solicitation of murder and several animal abuse charges.
