British wildlife park denies any connection to controversial Carole Baskin in Tiger King
A wildlife park has denied being linked in any way to the controversial Big Cat Rescue featured on the hit Netflix show Tiger King.
The Big Cat Sanctuary has been bombarded with questions from people associating it with the sanctuary in Tampa, Florida, run by Carole Baskin, who appears in the series.
Her bitter feud with jailed flamboyant zoo owner Joe Exotic and the mysterious disappearance of her first husband are central to the popular documentary.
And now the wildlife park near Ashford, Kent has publicly distanced itself from Carole’s park.
In a post on its Facebook page, the company said: “The Big Cat Sanctuary, based in Kent (UK), is not affiliated with Big Cat Rescue or the documentary ‘Tiger King’ which airs on Netflix.
As such, we will not be commenting on ‘Tiger King’ or Big Cat Rescue at this time.
“The cats in our sanctuary are with us for a variety of reasons, whether through coordinated breeding programs, rescued or cats in need of a home that act as ambassadors for their cousins. in nature and, in turn, support wildlife conservation.
“We strive to provide the best possible life in captivity for all of our cats.
“In an ideal world, keeping animals in sanctuaries and zoos would not be necessary. Unfortunately, we are not in an ideal world.
