Carole Baskin, CEO of Big Cat Rescue Corp., really should put her volunteers on a short leash to avoid accidental slip-ups like admitting that there have only been a handful of rescues in 10 years. But aren't they a rescue? Isn't that what their name implies? Well, let's dig a little deeper.
A couple weeks ago, I, along with other random individuals, were pitted against Big Cat Rescue supporters including the notorious Carole Baskin herself, her lackey Jeff Kremer, and a woman who has been a volunteer at Big Cat Rescue for 10 years. The heated discussion took place beneath a Facebook post Oxford Learning made stating how they will be donating money to Big Cat Rescue for every "LIKE" they receive. You can find the whole discussion HERE (Oxford Learning Discussion) since almost every negative comment against Big Cat Rescue has been deleted. Quite odd behavior coming from a Facebook page representing an institution dedicated to furthering education.
Big Cat Rescue claims to be "home to about 100 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars, servals and other species most of whom have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, saved from being turned into fur coats, or retired from performing acts." They claim that even though almost all of the cats in their care have been bought, bred, and sold as you should be fully aware of by now if you have read the many pages on my website. Anyway, below are two statements the volunteer had made that contradict what Big Cat Rescue says they are and further prove that they haven't really rescued many cats as we have always claimed.
The volunteer states there has only been a handful of rescues in the 10 long years she has been there. So why does Big Cat Rescue have the word "Rescue" in their name if they haven't really rescued many cats in the 10 years they have been known as Big Cat Rescue? Could it be that they rely on their name to fool the public into thinking all of the cats in their care are rescues?
