Exotic is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence for crimes including trying to hire someone to murder Baskin.
Footage shown in the documentary sees Exotic discussing a blaze at his zoo. He said the animals involved were “boiling alive in a towering inferno”.
Finlay, who was in a relationship with Exotic when Tiger King was filmed, spoke about Jackson’s animals in a new interview for Lights Out with David Wade.
He said: “My favourite animals were the alligators and crocodiles. A previous manager had gotten Michael Jackson’s alligators from the Neverland ranch.
“We’d got some other ones from friends and stuff. They were the ones I really took care of most of the time.”
According to a 2015 KXII article written after the fire took place, Exotic himself said: “The building can be replaced, the equipment can be replaced, but Michael Jackson’s alligators cannot be replaced.”
