The businessman and former head of the Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park, also known as the G.W. Zoo, Joseph Schreibvogel, is currently serving a 22-year sentence for hiring someone to kill his rival, zoo owner Carole Baskin.
Joe’s estranged brother, Yarri Schreibvogel, makes an appearance in the second season’s first episode to reveal new details about Joe's childhood, who says Joe loved being the centre of attention.
In the first episode of the new season, Yarri talks about having a tough childhood growing up on the family farm where the children had to work, Joe being an attention seeker and how he loved dressing up.
Joe rarely discusses his two sisters, Pam and Tammy, or older brother, Yarri while he has recounted losing his brother Garrold in a car accident.
“He’d dress up as a cowboy one day, then he’d dress up as a grandma. It was like he was in a make-believe world,” Yarri reveals.
While another throwback snap from the documentary series sees young Joe in a coat holding a rifle.
Yarri claims Joe used to shoot animals with a BB gun around the house before treating them by “doctoring them back to life”.
The two brothers used to be close, with another old picture capturing Joe and Yarri holding fish they presumably caught while fishing.
However Yarri says he hasn’t seen his brother in over two decades and despite his rise to fame, he has no intention for a brotherly reunion anytime soon.
"I haven't seen Joe face to face in 20 years and don't want to because it ain't going to be pretty,” Schreibvogel says.
"It didn't matter what he had to do to get people to look at him, he would do it."
"Joe screwed over a million people. I don't understand why all these bullsh*t lawyers ain't ever talked to the right people."
Tiger King 2 is available on Netflix now.
