Big Cat Rescue, Corp.
August 20, 2011
As a former volunteer I would like to tell everyone to PLEASE do your research before you visit BCR. It is sad to say that I found out the "script" I was given to do tours is lie after lie. After many people told me I was lying I did my own research and found out I was infact lying to all of the tours. When brought to the attention of Carole Baskin (Lewis at the time) she shrugged it off, had more lies to tell. Over 94,000 of her own money went into buying these animals. They were NOT rescued, they were bought at PETS! Now she wants everyone to feed her PETS, claiming they were abused to get your hard earned money. Sad, because there are true rescues who do rescue and rehomes that could use the money, however Carole is workng hard to get them all closed down.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
All other rescues are afraid of her because she wants to be the ONLY rescue. When in fact she has bought the animals.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Get rid of Carole Baskin and help the animals. She doesnt care about any anmals, its all about the "fame" she is getting and the money it is making her!
