Carole Baskin on Talking Animals


What Carole Baskin learned in 20 years of saving exotic cats.


Carole talks about the Big Cat Coalition and our work to end the trade in big cats.  In this interview Carole mis spoke and said "one week window" but meant "one month window."

Rebuttal to Pay to Play exploiters and those who mislead others about rabbit feeding issues.

      Great interview Carole…..I love how you talk about how BCR progressed as you learned more and more. I also love how you handle the people that rail against BCR, never resorting to "playing dirty", only moving forward and keeping it about the cats. 🙂
