The crew of a brand new reality show filmed at the zoo owned by Joe Exotic and appearing in the series Neflix Tiger King believed they had found human remains.
Law enforcement officials were dispatched to the Oklahoma Zoo after dead dogs appeared to report that they may have found parts of a body.
Agents of the Oklahoma State Investigation Office and assistants to the Garvin County Sheriff were at the scene of the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park on Friday evening.

Human remains allegedly found by dead dogs at the site
The remains were found in an alligator pit on the massive property
The dogs were already on the site as filming began on a new season of Ghost Adventures, according to the New York Post.
In the end, it turned out that the remains were simply those of a small animal, perhaps an alligator according to TMZ, and not human remains. The scent was picked up in an alligator pit. The investigation was then closed.
Initially, the owners of the dog thought that the animals smelled like a trail of parts of the human body.
Earlier this week, the zoo was awarded to Joe Exotic’s rival, Carole Baskin.

A judge granted Baskin, 58, full control of the infamous 16.4-acre Exotic Park after ruling in his favor over the fraudulent land transfer documents.
Exotic, whose real name is Joe Maldonado-Passage, 57, is currently serving a 22-year sentence in a hired murder scheme against Baskin and other charges of animal abuse.
On Wednesday, Exotic’s management team spoke on Twitter to call on Baskin’s alleged campaign against exotic “treason” in a statement that also acknowledged the death of George Floyd, a black man killed in custody at seen in Minnesota.
“Although we recognize once again that it is really time to pray for justice for the family of George Floyd as well as to end systemic racism in America, we must tackle the betrayal of Carol Baskin before she be under control, ”they wrote on Twitter.

In another Twitter article, Exotic management said that Baskin’s takeover of the GW Exotic Animal Memorial Park “is a dark day in history.”
“It is a dark day in history when someone takes the job of a man’s life when the world is not watching,” read the tweet.
“Carole Baskin robbed the zoo while Joe is helpless behind bars and the world is trying to repair the breakdown in our police force. “
A judge granted Baskin, owner of Big Cat Rescue, control of the land to help satisfy a million dollar judgment that Exotic had been ordered to pay her for copyright infringement.
Exotic left the zoo for his former business partner Jeff Lowe and his mother, but a judge ruled that his transfer of zoo land a few years ago was fraudulent, he revealed on Monday.
