My friend writes a blog, she makes me look calm & reserved when she gets on a roll. On the other hand when she does appear to be calm about something, I get very worried. She has been doing a series I have followed here this month about Big Cats Rescue, HSUS, & a couple other agencies on my radar.
GW Exotic Animal Park
Big Cats Rescue
Hopefully you can see the stark differences between the two parks, BCR has no roofs or covers over any of the enclosures, & it appears their gardener either ran away or was eaten… That would almost be funny if her first husband did not mysteriously disappear, but that is okay, she moved on & got another husband… a rich lawyer far as I know. So she is now attacking GW with…. Donated money? Meant to care for the animals? So why does she hate Joe & GW so badly? Well cause she is a “Sanctuary” – he is a “Roadside Zoo”
According to the Florida Wildlife Commission Big Cat Rescue is NOT a sanctuary!!! Opps…Yes, it’s true…Big Cat Rescue is nothing more than a ‘Roadside Zoo’…the very same type of place that Baskin complains so much about and attacked. The very same one she has spent 100’s of thousands of donated money to sue for “copy write infringement” ( How would she know if he did? How would she spell it if she could prove it?)
There is no comparison to GW Exotic Animal Park
Bottom line is that Big Cat Rescue is ADVERTISED as a sanctuary and FWC says it is NOT-This is purposely committing FRAUD on the public. They operate as any other business without so much as a dime paid in taxes on contributions with the contributions it receives being tax deductible because they have a 501(c)3 …Animals needing placement in Florida that need to go to a sanctuary should NOT be going to Big Cat Rescue. This explains why Baskin has to buy animals: A “Sanctuary” that has to BUY it’s animals? Curiouser & curiouser… HSUS brought her into his organization of sanctuaries (GFAS) and the state of Florida says she is NOT
Big cat Rescue is listed on the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, it does NOT meet Florida criteria as a sanctuary. Are you confused yet? A sanctuary that is not a sanctuary is going after a roadside zoo, for copy write infringement… Are you with me so far?
One things for sure… You can’t count on the police to do anything about it
GFAS offers its sincere thanks to the following generous supporters, listed in alphabetical order. Thanks to their support, GFAS has been transformed from a ambitious vision into an effective reality, helping sanctuaries help animals!

Okay so they have an impressive donor list themselves but any time HSUS, or ASPCA are involved, that worries me tremendously
Now we have PETA, disgruntled ex-employees, taking pictures & the FBI getting involved & going through Joe’s computers in this freak show & in the mean time Ms BCR did win her lawsuit against a bankrupt man… Didn’t think that one through did she?
So getting back to Carol Lewis Baskins previous husband….
Don Lewis’s body was never recovered nor was he ever found as ‘still alive’. Exactly WHEN and WHERE Don Lewis will turn up is unknown but there has been much speculation concerning this matter. From being put thru a grinder and then fed the cats to being buried under the septic tank (that is in the cougar enclosure) that WAS poured within days of his disappearance, to being alive and well in Costa Rica or some other place however, there is little doubt he would have left penniless or left anything to Baskin. Don Lewis pleaded with the sheriff’s office that he was in fear for his life (interesting claim coming from a husband). What I don’t understand, is that the judge would not grant this because ‘he continued to live with her’. How many times have we heard that the abused person, no matter man or woman, would continue to reside with their abuser?!? In this case, I doubt Don Lewis would pay to stay in a motel rather than stay in his own home.
For her part, Carole Lewis, who harbors suspicions of her own—among them the notion that Don may have staged his disappearance—finds the Sweeney Todd theory grimly humorous. “My tigers eat meat; they don’t eat people,” she says. “There would be bones and remains of my husband out there. I’m amazed that people would even think such a thing.”
Okay so now I am actually scared of this woman… Um… People ARE made out of meat! Is she trying to tell us that her sanctuary looks like a bone yard with bits & pieces of all the animals they eat just lying about? Yikes!
Uh oh… you know your famous when someone makes a video about you: Now people are starting to FINALLY ask questions. I still want to know how a sanctuary is called a sanctuary if they BUY their pets.
I’m sure by now that everyone knows that is perfectly acceptable to have garbage, sewage & built up animal waste inside of flimsy pens in the middle of Hurricane Alley….
ALDF & Baskin are now trying to get Tony the Tiger (the truck stop tiger in La.) He is a senior cat who is a roadside attraction for many folks in the Louisiana Parish area
So you have to ask yourself: What is tofu & salad eating attorney doing down in the bayou? You also have to wonder “what reputable sanctuary” they believe they have the God given power to come in & take this animal to.
La appeal court: Truck stop tiger permit invalid
A permit to keep a tiger named Tony at a truck stop outside Baton Rouge was invalid because the truck stop’s owner wasn’t the animal’s legal owner, the state 1st Circuit Court of Appeal ruled Thursday. The three-judge panel upheld most of a district court ruling in the case involving the 12-year-old Bengal-Siberian tiger mix displayed as an attraction at Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete, about 20 miles west of Baton Rouge. The panel, in its decision, also upheld an order barring the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries from granting a new permit to truck stop owner Michael Sandlin. “We’re thrilled,” said Matthew Liebman, attorney for the Animal Legal Defense Fund, of Cotati, Calif.
There is NO LIMIT on the crazy of these animal rights extremists. Mark my words they are coming to your state, they may already be there, waiting & watching. Talk about a pathetic existence.
I left out the last two articles but you can see it at Top Cats Roar & I am going break off on my own a little bit here. I found many many articles showing, absolutely proving she is nothing more then a breeder turned scam artist turned Animal Rights Activist who is talking about destroying her animals now that “she has seen the light”
Her “sanctuary”, which is still by definition a zoo, is the largest accredited big cat facility. The facility possesses an incredibly rare white serval whose origins are also being questioned, as well as sand cats that were ‘surplus from a breeding program’. While no longer does she breed, buy, or sell animals, her original plans seem to be moving as strongly as ever but under a new guise.
It seems to be uncommon for Big Cat Rescue to praise rescues that are similar to theirs, but they sure have made a lot of noise in insisting that they, and not any other facility, should be the caretakers of Tony the tiger who currently and controversially resides at a truck stop… even going as far as to have an available space for Tony for years, despite their claim that they must turn away many animals annually.
Carole Baskin now states that her ultimate goal is to close down her rescue, and completely phase out big cats (and most likely other exotics that will be up to her determination) in captivity because these animals cannot live a respectful existence in such a setting… and then Big Cat Rescue’s videos pan to their collection of animals…living a respectful existence in captivity.
One has to wonder if this article she wrote was in fact subconsciously directed at herself…
“Who are Exotic Pet Owners”.
“What is almost universally shared by those who keep wild animals as pets, or props and even most of those who operate private zoos and sanctuaries is that they are uneducated, poor, unattractive, hot tempered, attention seekers. Marked differences in the genders are that men are usually slovenly, womanizing, have a criminal history or leanings, and are dependant on drugs or alcohol to manage their depression. Whereas women are most often blonde, fat, have low self esteem, are childless or estranged from their families, and prone to rages of jealousy.”
This webiste has pages & pages of articles about her abuse & fraud.
NOTHING in rescue ever makes sense, the people involved for the most part seemed to have escaped insane asylums WITHOUT their medication. Ego’s rule, humaniac’s are everywhere, save the lion, the elephant & the tiger while celebrating over the dead body of a cow or a pig or a chicken, & hey: If you can’t find out anything bad or damaging on “The Competition” MAKE IT UP! I swear with God as my witness the more I read & learn the crazier I get, because 1st you have to read it, then you have to wrap your head around it, then you actually have to figure it out after you have gotten it all straightened out IF YOU CAN…. I’ll be in the corner banging my head against a wall.
