‘Tiger King’ Producers Say That Carole Baskin Was Never ‘Coerced’

If you haven’t watched Netflix’s Tiger King, you simply must!

The series exposes some of the biggest exotic wild animal collectors in the United States, and they’re not happy with how they’ve been depicted!

In a blog post, Carole Baskin, owner of Big Cat Rescue, slammed the production by calling it “salacious and sensational.”

Furthermore, she said she was coerced into believing that the documentary was to be the “big cat version of Blackfish,” a film that exposed abuse at SeaWorld.

But now, producers are biting back.

“Carole talked about her personal life, her childhood, abuse from her first and second husband, the disappearance of her ex, Don Lewis. She knew that this was not just about … it’s not a Blackfish because of the things she spoke about,” co-producer Eric Goode told the L.A. Times.

“She certainly wasn’t coerced. The other thing I would say about all these people is that there was a lack of intellectual curiosity to really go and understand or even see these animals in the wild. Certainly, Carole really had no interest in seeing an animal in the wild… The lack of education, frankly, was really interesting — how they had built their own little utopias and really were only interested in that world and the rules they had created.”

Wow… well, this series is certainly bringing more attention to Carole — and she does not want that.
