WYNNEWOOD, Oklahoma - The Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park is relocating to a new location.

Joe Maldonado-Passage formerly owned the exotic animal park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma approximately 70 miles south of Oklahoma City. 

The new owner Jeff Lowe said the new zoo will be opening closer to Fort Wort and Dallas, which is closer to where many of the animals are from. "A group of us are opening another Zoo near the Winstar Casino in Thackerville, before Spring Break 2019," said Lowe.

"We plan to have elephants, giraffes, rhinos and of course lions, tigers and the hybrid cats, along with the largest petting zoo you have ever seen," Lowe said.

Lowe said much of the park has been dismantled already, including former owner Joe Maldonado-Passage's house. 

"All our animals will be going with us, we will leave nobody behind," Lowe said.
