Tiger King's Jeff Lowe Is Being Sued by the State of Oklahoma for $50,000 in Back Taxes

The order said that the park must "cease and desist all business operations," and said that "any person engaging in business without a proper permit may be charged with a misdemeanor."

A representative for Lowe did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

The state used Lowe's June 2 statement in which he said, "we are still open for business!" as evidence that he has continued to operate after being told not to.

That statement came after Carol Baskin was award control of the G.W. Exotic Animal Park, which was previously owned by Tiger King's main subject, Joseph "Joe Exotic" Maldonado-Passage.
