In her first interview since Tiger King was released, Carole Baskin is sharing how her life has changed.
She said she had to turn her phone off due to the abundance of calls she receives day and night.
“I’ve had to turn my phone off,” Baskin told theTampa Bay Times, in reference to the numerous calls she says she receives around the clock from strangers. “I can’t tell the real ones from the fake ones because they’re always out of state numbers anyway.”
She said she is scared to leave her home due to the death threats she has received.
She also stated that she is unhappy about how the documentary turned out. Both she and her husband believed it was going to focus on the exploitation of tiger breeding.
“I just feel so angry that people have totally missed the point,” she told the newspaper, with her husband adding, “There’s almost no way to describe the intensity of the feeling of betrayal.”
