As you probably already know, Carole Baskin is the CEO and Founder of Big Cat Rescue. She is one of the individuals leading the charge in the push to ban exotic animals, specifically big cats, in the United States. While we neither condone nor condemn the ownership of big cats, we see outright bans as a dangerous infringement on the rights of all Americans.
Ruining people’s businesses, livelihood, and attempting to take away their pets has got to make a person a few enemies and cause a tremendous amount of stress. That stress would be further intensified if the said person is lying, spreading misinformation, and manipulating people to meet their goal, knowing at anytime they can get caught in their own web of lies (watch this exposé).
In a recent article posted on Big Cat Rescue's website, Carole detailed an account where she came very close to the possibility of drawing her gun out and ramming her car into a police officer that was monitoring the speed of passing motorist (emphasis added):
Could you just imagine what would've happened if Carole had attacked the police officer? If she is this on edge then maybe, just maybe, she should consider not carrying around a gun? Things only get stranger the more we dig into Carole's previous writings.
According to an archived page from the now defunct Wildlife On Easy Street website, Carole Baskin casually wrote about hearing voices in her head that tell her what to do (emphasis added):
We hope Carole has received the help she needs since the time of writing that. One has got to wonder what would happen if those voices told her to do something that would bring harm to a person.
We have been told that many zoos will not allow anyone with mental problems or anyone that takes certain prescribed drugs to work in close proximity to dangerous animals. So why is Carole allowed to freely roam around with big cats yet alone own a firearm?
Eerily enough, two grown men have actually filed for protection orders against Carole. One of those men, Jack Donald Lewis, went missing after alleging Carole hid his gun and threatened to kill him (emphasis added):
Jay Baykal was the second man to file for an order of protection against Carole. He didn't go missing, but he did fear for his life and with good reason if what he says is true (emphasis added):
Another interesting piece of information to surface in recent years is the confession of a supposed witness to the signing of Jack Lewis' will and power of attorney. In an exchange that took place through emails, the witness claims to have never seen Mr. Lewis sign either document, but said he did because she claimed to have feared retaliation from Carole. The witness willingly committed perjury in court out of supposed fear.
With all the evidence publicly available, we can see a rather unsettling picture being painted of the CEO of Big Cat Rescue.
She hears voices in her head telling her what to do. She has multiple domestic incidents with her former spouses. Two grown men have filed for order of protections against her. One of those men disappeared two months after Carole allegedly threatened to kill him. A witness to the signing of her missing husband's will and power of attorney admitted that she never saw him sign either one, but perjured herself in court because Carole terrified her.
The recent run in with the cop should be sounding off alarms. In our opinion, she should resign from her position at Big Cat Rescue. We don't understand why she is still allowed to own a firearm yet alone operate a multi-million dollar roadside zoo containing numerous dangerous animals. Can her judgment be trusted?
