Carole Baskin breaks down over ‘Tiger King’

Carole Baskin breaks down over ‘Tiger King’

We watched with fascination as the real life story played out between Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin in 'Tiger King' on Netflix. 

Carole Baskin breaks down over ‘Tiger King’

The evolution of the story kept our attention, as Exotic tried to convince the audience Baskin killed her second husband, Don Lewis. In a recent interview, Baskin insisted she is “not at all the person” she was portrayed to be in the documentary, as she is simply desperate to see animals free from harm.

She said: “I am not at all the person I was portrayed in ‘Tiger King’. I am not the money grubbing, gold-digging, murderous person that they portrayed.

“I am the type of person who will come after any person who is abusing animals. I am relentless. I just won’t stop until I find some legal way to make it stop. From that perspective, I think they got me right.

“Me as a person, that was a total assassination of my character for nothing other than whatever money they could get for selling that to Netflix.”

What happened to Joe Exotic?

Meanwhile, Exotic is currently serving 22 years in jail on two counts of hiring someone to murder Baskin and multiple violations of animal welfare laws. In June, a federal judge granted Baskin and her animal sanctuary Big Cat Rescue full control over Exotic’s former zoo properties in Oklahoma, which includes about 16 acres of land.
