Video: Paranormal Investigation at 'Tiger King' Zoo Prompts Police Response

By Tim Binnall

In a bizarre turn of events, the filming of a paranormal television program at the Oklahoma zoo made infamous by the Netflix series 'Tiger King' was put on hold over the weekend when police were called to investigate the possible detection of human remains. The confluence of strangeness reportedly began on Friday when the show 'Ghost Adventures' visited the notorious wildlife park in search of spirits. For reasons unexplained, part of the production included the enlisting of cadaver dogs, which is where things got weird.

According to Garvin County Sheriff Jim Mullett, the two body-sniffing canines "hit on a small alligator pond that is no longer being used" and, understandably, this prompted a call to police. A team of investigators soon arrived and spent five hours searching the location. "We took our time and we looked around," Mullett told a local TV station, "looked in the pond and dug down." However, the only remains that cops were able to find were those of a small tailless animal.

Be that as it may, the current owner of the wildlife park isn't quite ready to dismiss the possibility that a body could be buried at the site. Jeff Lowe expressed doubt over the results of the search, theorizing that a storm which swept over the area could have had a hand in confusing the dogs when it came to narrowing down the precise spot where human remains may be buried at the zoo. As such, he plans to bring the canines back to the location at some point in the future when the ground has dried to see if they may hit on a different spot.
