On Friday Big Cat Rescue announced that they had received a phone call from a biologist with the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission about a bobcat kitten in need of help because its mother had allegedly been run over by a car.
Long story short, they were unsuccessful at capturing the bobcat, but the over exaggerated story Carole Baskin, CEO and Founder of Big Cat Rescue, wrote about the overwhelming struggles she faced alongside her daughter in their failed attempts to net and trap a kitten has some interesting statements worth pointing out.
One particular section that quickly caught our attention is the part where Carole felt the need to disclose her supernatural ability that involves a torrent of images filling her mind with past events directly connected to whatever animate or inanimate thing she's touching at the moment.
As hard as it is to even process that, we're not making this up.
Carole actually wrote that when recounting the part of her arduous mission where she stumbled upon and picked up the decaying maggot covered corpse of the mother of the bobcat kitten (emphasis added):
Additionally, the images apparently provide her insight into what actions she should make (emphasis added):
This sure does sound awfully familiar, doesn't it? It should because we previously shined a light on a past article Carole wrote on her Wildlife On Easy Street website in the late 90s. In that article she wrote about hearing voices in her head telling her what to do: CEO of Big Cat Rescue Hears Voices In Her Head?
While that portion of Big Cat Rescue’s article is interesting enough on its own, there is another piece that stood out.
Carole seems to have indicated that she and her daughter placed traps on the property of a business whose manager denied her permission to place traps (emphasis added):
During the time of writing this article Big Cat Rescue has posted a couple updates stating that they have yet to capture the bobcat. They have also resorted to asking the public for help in locating the cat and have even started posting and mailing out flyers with their contact information and link to their website.
They seem so adamant in catching the bobcat which must mean they have enlisted the help from other local wildlife rehabbers. Surely they’re not risking the life of the bobcat just because they want it all for themselves.
In other related news, Big Cat Rescue has gotten their hands on a different bobcat kitten that was caught snatching chickens out of a coop. We wonder how their rehabilitation program will teach the bobcat not to seek out someone's chickens once released back into the wild.
