Two friends from the state of Indiana, USA are campaigning on Facebook for a protest at Big Cat Rescue, Florida (BCR). Their call to action is published below. The picture is an attempted joke on the refuted accusation (without evidence) repeated in the Netflix film that Baskin put her husband’s body in a meat grinder. I think this picture could be defamatory.
I had already said previously we should protest her. Due to how she treats staff, collects money, doesn’t do anything for wildlife or conserving wildlife, Blankman said in a message.
There are a few issues that need to be raised about this.
It is planned to take place on July 10. This is possibly too optimistic because of the coronavirus pandemic. I’d expect that large gatherings will still be banned on that date but I could be very wrong.
These two men, Chad Blankman and Randy Baker think that BCR is a sham. They think that Carole Baskin is not genuinely carrying out cat rescue. In my opinion they are badly mistaken. They should read my page on this (click here).
As at the date of this post – 4 April – there are 1,200 people who have said they will go to the protest. Carole Baskin needs a heads up on this. Although it may well fizzle out or be peaceful it may not and they could cause trouble.
Blankman and Baker appear to have believed everything that is said in the Netflix documentary, which has been discussed endlessly online and which has gone viral. It is called: “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness”.
On the BCR website Carole Baskin refutes the criticism of her in the documentary which she described as sensationalist and salacious. In other words the makers have hyped it up and lied to make the film appear more interesting. I’d hope that these two read her rebuttal to the accusations. It they visit this page I’d ask them to click on this link to go to it.
