Netflix documentary Tiger King has revealed the reason why one of the best stars of the zoo, John Rin, did not file a lawsuit against the company responsible for his horrific injuries and possible amputation.
As Rank explained in the series, he couldn’t lose his leg because of the tiger cub – which he did while working as a professional bungee jumper in the mid-90s and for testing a company’s zip line.
“We were preparing and testing, the shift failed and I fell 50 feet,” he told Tufab. “She broke my back, my hips, my legs. I was paralyzed for several years. “
He continued, “(I understand) I don’t want a role in a wheelchair, so I’ve learned how to walk… and I don’t have to.” However, I ended up with a bone infection and so I eventually lost my leg. “
The reason he did not sue or disclose the company’s name was because the company was owned by his former friends who had promised to help him, but did not succeed – even after winning the lottery.
“I haven’t seen them. I don’t even think they know I exist anymore,” he said before adding that the restriction rule had expired and he could no longer sue.
“It simply came to our notice then. You have nothing to do here. That story is more crazy; They won the Texas Lottery. They won $ 1 million or something. “

Asked about his thoughts on former boss Joe Ecstasy’s prison, he said: “He’s still where he is. He shouldn’t have been there 22 years. He did something wrong, but I think he did it well enough. “
