Gina the Bobcat Rehabber This is me at about 19 years of age totally terrified to hold these parrots at Busch Gardens. Carole, I want to thank you for the time you took to give us a tour of your rescue. I was amazed, you have quite the system going there and should be really proud of it. I feel relieved, knowing that if I die before my bobcats, tha…
 
Tribute to Alex Tiger What was I going to do now? The Louisiana Department of Natural Resources had told me they were going to seize Tony the tiger from the Tiger Truck Stop because the cat was held there illegally. I had flown out to Baton Rouge, and driven up to Grosse Tete to assess what our rescue team would need in the way of vehicle, transpor…
 
Jeff Lowe Kills Mediation Deal We Had With Joe Schreibvogel Howie wrote this in a future email explaining the sequence of events to Louis Thereoux on 4/21/2021. The mediation had been on 11/2/2015. The mediation lasted 12 hours. I asked for modest payments of $5000. If you do the math, that would never come to $1mm. But we just wanted there to be s…
 
How Babylon Got His Name Photo of Jamie holding a Himalayan kitten when we lived at 11306 Castleberry Road, Odessa, FL Today I responded to someone who was thanking me for advising them against buying hybrid cats. Hi Christopher, Thank you for doing the research before falling victim to someone who would take your money and ruin your life and that …
 
UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School’s online MBA program Hi Carole, In November MBA@UNC, UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School’s online MBA program, is launching a new article series called “7 Business Women Who are Leading the Nonprofit World” and we would love for you to take part. We know that women who run nonprofits are doing tremendous amounts of g…
 
Blood Lions Blood Lions ran on MSNBC last night in our area at 10pm, which is after my bedtime, so I taped and watched it this morning. I cried throughout, for the suffering of these lions, but by the end I was weeping. I couldn’t even speak without crying uncontrollably. Howie had taken Jamie and Justin to the airport at 5:30 am for their trip to …
 
Robert Moor, a writer for GQ, interviewed Howie and I today for a story he’s doing on Joe Schreibvogel. I have low expectations that he will expose Joe for the liar he is, but I answered his questions; even though it was weird to talk about Don and my past in front of Howie. I hadn’t thought about a lot of the things he asked, which are all the ani…
 
Murder Suicide Threat So it’s the day after Joe Schriebvogel’s count down on Facebook for the last week to his “murder - suicide” starring me, I’m still alive and fear he probably is too. Big Cat Public Safety Act is re-introduced in the House as HR 3546 I feel like I’ve been holding my breath for 8 months and 17 days and 16 hours. The bill has FIN…
 
My presentation to the FWC drew deafening applause from the crowd. This was the testimony I offered to the Florida Wildlife Commission in an unsuccessful effort to protect the Florida Panther. My name is Carole Baskin and I am the founder and CEO of Big Cat Rescue. I urge you to discard your plan to undermine the Florida Panther recovery program an…
 
Fate of the Florida Panther and Murder Suicide Threat Howie, Jen Leon and I are driving to Ft. Lauderdale today for the FWC meeting tomorrow about the fate of the Florida Panther. I wrote Barry an old school chum from the days of Florida College Academy: “I’m presenting in Ft Lauderdale to the FWC on the Florida Panther but will compare calendars w…
 
Law Enforcement Today I wrote this to our volunteers and added it to the Vox automated tour: Big Cat Rescue gets no funding from the government, but often steps in to help government agencies. When states pass laws to ban the private possession of big cats, they always include a grandfather clause that allows the people who have big cats to keep th…
 
I have that sick, acid feeling in the pit of my stomach A rescue is underway and the anticipation and concern for the safe travels of the animals kept me from sleeping last night and from concentrating today. On July 31, 2015 Bobbi Brink wrote: Hi Carole, Just wondering if you have any space for Tigers out of Ohio I can transport to you? - Bobbi Br…
 
18 years since Don walked out the door Today came and went without much more impact than me being a little more irritable than usual. Speaking of which, I just figured out a way to make my keyboard less noisy by putting a folded pillow case between it and the typing tray. Why didn’t I think of that 20 years ago? It’s been 18 years since Don walked …
 
I’m Way Too Fat 47-39-46 and 193 pounds. I ordered a book called No Fail Fat Burning For Women by Skye. She said that I should be looking at my body size and fat ratios, more than weight and that makes sense, as muscle weighs more than fat. I feel so much better on the Bulletproof diet, so I’d like to stick with it, if I can see some benefits in th…
 
Email to Chris Wilson, developer of the TigerSelfieApp Since the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was in the news yesterday, I didn't want to wait for our creatives to come up with messaging, so I took your ideas and turned them into this page: http://bigcatrescue.org/selfie Our creatives can tweak the message to help it gain steam. Happy for your input as…
 
BIG CAT PUBLIC SAFETY ACT RE-INTRODUCED – NEED YOUR HELP! Congress operates in two year sessions. At the end of each session, any bills that did not get signed into law “die” and have to be re-introduced in the next session. Once a bill is introduced, legislators can “co-sponsor” the bill by calling the legislator who introduced it. The co-sponsor …
 
Email to Mike Di Paola re an article he is writing for HSUS Magazine. I just added this to the top of our page on our evolution to try and sum it up: Animal abusers hate us because we are the leading sanctuary dedicated to ending the abuse at its root by banning the private possession of exotic cats. These big cat abusers make up lies or twist the …
 
Dealing with Mobile Home Permits Photo: Underpass at Linebaugh was flooded, so I had to go the long way to work on my bike. Yesterday, while walking around the sanctuary with my mother she told me that the little old bitty who lives near my lot on Valimar had thrown a fit that we were putting a used DCA mobile home on the lot rather than building a…
 
Big Cat Rescue Entrepreneurial Audit Jaclyn Gutierrez & Josh Cooper ENT6930 Introduction One of the main staples of Corporate Entrepreneurship at the University of Florida involves performing an entrepreneurial audit. This audit is to be performed by a team of graduate students (Jaclyn Gutierrez and Josh Cooper) by the permission of the executive t…
 
Erin Carden, Vanessa Ply and me at the Animal Rights Conference 2015 The day before the conference the news broke about Cecil the lion and today I finally could put to paper (our website) what I’ve been mulling over. Cecil Lion Changed the World I have a theory. I can’t prove it, but it feels right to me. Tell me in the comments if it makes sense t…
 
International Tiger Day and I was quoted by CNN Ban America's pet tigers, activists say, as wild tiger numbers drop to record low By Monica Sarkar, CNN July 29, 2015 International Tiger Day falls on July 29, aiming to raise awareness of the endangered animal. Around 3,000 wild tigers exist today, yet an estimated 5,000 are kept in U.S. backyards Wi…

Photo is me this morning at 197 unhappy pounds I’m exactly 30 pounds fatter than I vowed I would ever be when I married my sweet Howard 12 years ago. I’ve struggled my entire life with my weight and menopause, which set in around 2010, hasn’t helped. Howie has been such a Godsend and does so much for me and the mission to end the trade in exotic ca…
 
We had been great friends in 6th - 9th grade at Florida College Academy and he and his family had recently moved back to the Tampa area and came by the Citrus Park Church of Christ. I didn’t recognize him, but it had been close to 40 years. We had said “Hello,” and promised to get together some time to discuss the old days, but it hadn’t happened u…
 
I posted this to our volunteers: It is with a heavy heart that I must report that Raindance Bobcat has left us to join her mate who died in 1994. Thank you ALL for giving her the best 22 years any captive bobcat could have. When she stopped eating last week we did diagnostics and found some bad teeth and very bad kidneys. We hoped that by removing …
 
Raindance Bobcat in 1998 Her end is approaching and I am so sad I feel like I could totally break with reality. When I woke up today, I laid there in bed in something of a panic because I couldn’t remember Jamie’s birthday. I knew it was in July and I had just missed my parents’ 55th anniversary for the first time ever, because I had forgotten when…
 
Maya and Cherokee Die the Same Day I don’t know if we have ever had two cats die the same day. Today we lost Maya, a Bengal Cat and Cherokee a Bobcat, and had the trauma of sedating Cameron the lion for a mass removal. It’s 3:36 now and I can finally exhale, knowing that we aren’t having to say good bye to three old friends to today. Maya was the a…
 
A Walk on the Beach Renews Me Eating dinner at one of my favorite dives, then a walk on the beach and thus will have been an excellent day! Just gave a presentation on Social Marketing to the Marketing Class at Eckerd College and someone left me a sweet note saying how much they appreciate me. Wildlife Trafficking is a complex problem. Most of Its …
 
If you want to see them squirm, here are the questions to ask. And what I know about the real answer. Michael Sandlin 1. Is it true there had been a ban on keeping tigers in Iberville Parish since 1993? Yes 2. Why was a special exception made for you? I heard it was because of family relationships. 3. What accredited sanctuaries (GFAS or ASA, not J…
 
Dinner with my darling at Whisky Joes on the Causeway See our sign at top left? They are a supporter of the sanctuary. Vets and Reporters I am up early today because Dr. Tammy Miller Michau and Dr. Liz Wynn Swearingen want to sedate Simba Leopard to look at his eye. He has a hole in the cornea that I wanted to treat w/ eye drops, rather than sedate…
 
Howie responded so eloquently I wanted to preserve it here: Think about other "mood shifts", or perhaps more accurately "evolution in societal values". Civil rights, gay rights, marijuana use, dog fighting. If you were to graph the number of people who adopted the changed belief, I think in most cases you would see a long line that grew painfully s…
 
We had to euthanize Cybil Serval today Jamie and Justin made the call to do it and it was the best thing. I’ve always felt awful about Cybil. She was born here, back before we knew any better, on 5/22/96 to Lucky Serval and a male named Nairobi. We had a pretty, young woman, named Katie, who would come in for the midnight, 2am and 4am feedings from…
 
Family dinner at Chuck and Trundy's house They grilled steaks, chicken and fish and we brought deserts. I weigh 194 lbs. Today we had the best conference call to date on the Big Cat and Public Safety Act. Our allies at HSUS and IFAW gathered in D.C., as did our lobbyist, Jason Osborne. Howie and I joined via phone. Our alliance with these, and othe…
 
I became interested in ancestry after seeing the commercials for Ancestry.com and remembering that my grandmother, Sara Maude Fisher Stairs had always said her son would be the King of England if not for one tragedy in the bloodline that had removed the family from their rightful place. She was about as crazy as they come, but she was so adamant ab…
 
Joe Schreibvogel Lawsuit Update Howard wrote this for our supporters, but it’s a great summary of work that has taken a lot of our time: LAWSUIT UPDATE By Howard Baskin 3/17/15 It has been a busy six months since our last update. So it is time to let our supporters know what is happening in our efforts to collect our judgment against Joe Schreibvog…
 
King Egbert (775 - 838) was my 37th great grandfather Howie and I are watching the second season of Vikings and it is so cool to see my ancestors portrayed in this show. King Egbert AKA Ecgberht, King of Wessex (775 - 838) was my 37th great grandfather • Redburh Wessex (788 - 839) wife of King Egbert • Ethelwulf Wessex son of Redburh Wessex • Alfre…
 
The Church of the Cat and Alexandra Montiel When I met the Reverend Alexandra Montiel in 1994, she was 55 and I was 33. At the time I thought how hard this wealthy woman was working to preserve her youth and wondered if I would fight the signs of aging so fiercely. She had just undergone a chemical peel on her face to remove any traces of wrinkles …
 
Howie’s Letter to Kansas Legislators re: cub handling TO: Kansas House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee RE: Cub petting misery and contribution to extinction in the wild Dear Committee Member: I am writing on behalf of big cat cubs to ask you not to support SB 97 for two reasons. The first is the misery this causes to the cubs during the…
 
Flew home from OKC after a long day of listening the Joe Schreibvogel lie, and lie, and lie. This is my opinion. Oklahoma City: 8:30 a.m. I step out into the bone chilling air to walk a few short blocks to our attorney’s office. Since arriving the day before, I’ve stayed out of sight, having all of my meals sent to the room, so that I don’t acciden…
 
Raising Cubs documentary by Stephanie Holt wrote saying: Hello, My name is Stephanie Holt and I work for Offspring Films. We are a wildlife TV production company and we are currently finishing a landmark series about the evolution of the cat family, featuring well-known big cats, such as lions, tigers and cheetahs as well as the more uncommonly kno…
 
Reno the Leopard Dies We probably can’t use a lot of this, until after Bengali dies, so that the circus doesn’t take him out of spite, but here is the background on Reno, so you know it for his tribute. Maybe you can find a nicer way to say some of this. I was lying to him and he knew it. I was saying, “It’s going to be alright, but my voice falter…
 
Tribute to Natasha the Siberian Lynx Natasha Siberian Lynx http://bigcatrescue.org/natasha/ Natasha was rescued when she was only 4 months old from a fur farm in 1993. She would have been killed and made into a coat in 1994 but instead lived out the next 21 years at Big Cat Rescue. Here she was raised with Alexander the hybrid Lynx and Willow, anot…
 
It Doesn’t Get Any Greener Than This I moved all of my properties and the sanctuary completely off the grid! Big Cat Rescue is committed to protecting exotic cats from captivity and in the wild and some may think that we put cats ahead of people, but that’s not true. Protecting habitat where cats live free is crucial to saving the planet for all of…
 
Niagara School of Film arranges to film at the sanctuary Carole Baskin, My name is Lauren Groleau and I attend Niagara College in Welland, Ontario (Canada) for Film Production. Five other passionate students and I are currently in the pre-production stages of producing a documentary to be filmed in March entitled Taming the King. The documentary is…
 
2013 the City Commission of Hallandale Beach, Florida voted to ban bullhooks, bucking straps and other cruel devices used to train and dominate animals to perform tricks for entertainment. The city of Miramar and Leon County, so that they could effectively keep out exotic animals by making requirements in fencing that wouldn't allow the FWC rules t…
 
What is a day like at Big Cat Rescue? Some things happen EVERY day, some things happen a few times a week, some things happen once a month and some things happen once a year. The problem with all of this structured order is that EVERY day there is some chaos introduced, so it is always a balancing act to take care of both the critically important, …
 
Howie’s Heart Surgery I kept the following log so I could keep Howie’s extensive friend list up to date on his progress. 1/4/15 The whole day of preparing for, flying to and arriving at the Cleveland Clinic for Howies open heart surgery had me so freaked out, I couldn't speak. I just tried to smile and act confident but kept tearing up. I knew I wa…
 
Speed Trap Heart Attack I don’t even remember the last time I got a speeding ticket. Chalk that up to old age; either I am driving like a little old granny these days, or I just can’t remember… I didn’t get a ticket today, as I drove past a speed trap, but nearly had a heart attack. The opponents to protecting wild animals are an evil lot, who don’…
 
2014 Annual Report With your help we are winning in the battle for compassion! Up until 2003 the number of requests for rescues we had to turn down due to lack of space or funds had roughly doubled each year, to 312 that year. We feared it would double again to over 500 in 2004. Instead, it has steadily declined since then thanks to the passage of …
