Bhagavan “Doc” Antle, the polyamorous owner of Myrtle Beach Safari, looks to have pawed around with several celebs before appearing on the Netflix hit.
The big cat breeder’s Instagram shows a number of stars who have visited his zoo including Beyoncé and boxer Floyd Mayweather.
Also spotted on Antle’s account is Odell Beckham Jr. The NFL star got clawed by Peta in January last year after he posted a video of himself playing with Antle’s tigers. The animal rights organizations roared in a tweet at the time that the zoo “exploited” animals for “cheap publicity stunts (that) are cruel and incredibly dangerous.”
On Monday, a video of Britney Spears’ 2001 “I’m a Slave 4 U” MTV VMA performance made the rounds online as viewers pointed out that Antle is visible on stage in a cage holding a tiger. And a woman who looks like Carole Baskin — another star of the series — appears to be sitting next to Spears at the 2002 VMAs.
According to Antle’s IMDb page, he’s also worked with animals on movies like “Ace Ventura,” “The Jungle Book” and “Mighty Joe Young.”
