The remains uncovered at the scene of the Tiger King zoo are not human, it has been claimed.

It was reported on Friday that police swooped to take a close look after parts were found in the alligator enclosure.

They arrived at Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma - and again fans of the show were left gripped.

But it doesn't appear what was discovered belonged to a person.

TMZ say that whatever was found had a tail.

They report: "Law enforcement sources tell us no human remains were found. They did uncover some animal bones that appear to be the skeleton of small animal with a tail."

Netflix  documentary fans were transfixed earlier this year when the series  Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness  was unleashed on the streaming service.

Viewers watched as Tiger King Joe Exotic – aka  57-year-old Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage  – was thrown behind bars for two counts of murder for hire amid a failed, and alleged, assassination plot against animal rights activist, Carole Baskin.

A judge recently ruled that animal rights activist Carole should have ownership of the zoo following her own lengthy legal battle against Joe.

It's not the first time the zoo made famous by the show has hit the headlines recently.

A whistleblower sent images to PETA which showed a number of lions with open bleeding wounds caused by flies laying eggs on their flesh.

The pictures sparked an investigation by USA authorities

The source handed over images to PETA allegedly from the zoo showing three lions with bloody, open wounds – with one exhibiting severely injured and bloody ears and others showing cuts on their legs.

The injuries are said to be caused by flies laying eggs on the animal skin and subsequent maggots eating the animals’ flesh.

The condition – known as flystrike – can be fatal if left untreated.
