The Truth Behind Netflix’s Tiger King | Stephanie Saunders ft. Carole Baskin

Carole is the founder of Big Cat Rescue and has been passionate about saving big cats for years.

In 2020 Netflix launched an extremely entertaining tv series called “Tiger King” – – which starred several sketchy characters who were running so called big cat sanctuaries. The show itself was a bit raunchy where many of the characters were addicted to drugs and running a muck but the highlight was the aggressive hatred between the main characters; One of which was Carole.

What is the truth behind Netflix’s Tiger King?


Big Cat Rescue, one of the world’s most influential sanctuaries for exotic cats, is a leading advocate for ending the abuse of captive big cats and saving wild cats from extinction. They are the most hated, feared and lied about by circuses, backyard breeders, roadside zoos, cub petting pimps  and pseudo-sanctuaries because they are the most effective at ending the abuse of big cats.  They wear that as a badge of honor.

They are home to lions, tigers, bobcats, caracals, jaguar and other species most of whom have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, saved from being turned into fur coats, or retired from performing acts.

In this episode Carole and I talk about the foundation of Big Cats Rescue and why she initially founded the organization which is rooted in her desire to stop cruelty against the big cats and create awareness of how human interaction has a detrimental effect. We also dive into the fact the Carole was completely blind sided by the streaming mogul Netflix. The show originally was presented to Carole and her husband as an outlet to shed light on animal cruelty and how she would help make a difference in the big cat community. When the show came out Carole was depicted as the Tiger Queen – who also had a big hand in actually running an unsafe and cruel tiger community where she also fed her ex husband to the animals. This resulted in hatred for months and millions of angry fans harassing her and her family. Also a few mentions in songs which began from one viral tiktok originally emulating Joe exotic.

I’m passionate about animals and look to spread awareness to stop animal cruelty against these beautiful big creatures by supporting Carole Baskin in her efforts
