If you're abusing big cats, Carole Baskin wants it known that she is coming for you. The internet’s most notorious cat lady is coming out of her cage to investigate animal abuse and take back the narrative surrounding her life in a new Discovery+ series.
Carole Baskin’s Cage Fight will explore the Big Cat Rescue CEO’s perspective on the events of Netflix’s Tiger King, and what she uncovers now that Joe Exotic’s G.W. Zoo is under her control. With her husband, Howard, retired homicide detective Griff Garrison, and Exotic’s own niece, Chealsi Putman, by her side, Baskin goes inside Exotic’s former Oklahoma property to investigate possible animal abuse and the allegations of other heinous crimes some have claimed occurred there over the past decades. The two-part docuseries will premiere on Discovery+ on Saturday, Nov. 13.
Leading up to the show's premiere, Baskin is back in the media spotlight due to an ongoing lawsuit with Netflix and a production company over the use of footage of Baskin in the Tiger King sequel, which is set to hit Netflix on Nov. 17. In the trailer for Carole Baskin’s Cage Fight, Baskin disparages the Netflix docuseries and its focus on Exotic.
“We were told Tiger King was a documentary about the abuse of wild animals, it turned out to be a reality TV show, at best.” Baskin says in a voiceover. “I’ve been going after animal exploiters for decades. Joe Exotic is one of them, and he’s in jail.”
Exotic, legally known as Joseph Maldonado-Passage, is currently serving a 22-year sentence for the 2017 murder-for-hire plot to kill Baskin, as well as for multiple violations of wildlife laws.
