Howard Baskin and wife Carole betrayed by Tiger big Kings stars
Howard and Carole Baskin established their Big Cat Rescue five years before to filmmakers who they thought were working on a docuseries to expose cruelty in the captive tiger trade.
The Baskins have struggled for years to ban the pay-to-play industry, which takes cubs prematurely from their mothers to be given away to paying customers. The pair even sat for interviews for the documentary, feeling the filmmakers would focus on their cause.

The sanctuary has been closed from March 16 because of the coronavirus pandemic. It closed before the docuseries aired. The documentary series follows the antics of Joseph Maldonaldo Passage aka Joe Exotic, a gay polygamous, obsessed mullet-wearing, Oklahoma zookeeper.
