PETA supporters say they plan to protest outside a court hearing in Las Vegas for animal exhibitor Jeff Lowe, best known for his role in the Netflix documentary "Tiger King."

The hearing is related to charges for possessing exotic animals and operating a business without a license, following a 2017 complaint, after which authorities raided his home and seized two big-cat cubs and a lemur.

The protest will take place at the intersection of Lewis Avenue and S. Third Street on July 14 at 9 a.m.
