Bay News 9 Investigative Reporter Chris Hawes' expose on Carole Lewis Baskin, CEO of Big Cat Rescue

UPDATE: 9-28-2011  WTSP Investigative Report 

In 2006, Carole Lewis Baskin told Bay News 9 investigative reporter Chris Hawes that all the breeding stopped when husband Don Lewis disappeared in 1997, Baskin now, five years later, admitted to WTSP investigative reporter Mike Deeson that there have been no cats bought or bred in 10 years, or since 2001, as we have reported all along.

Since true sanctuary/rescues do not buy or breed cats, Carole can not truthfully say that Big Cat Rescue began in 1992/93 with 56 bobcat kittens she claims she 'rescued' from a fur farm; kittens which were bought, bred and sold. It is also a lie to claim that she is dedicated exclusively to abandoned and abused cats when she started with 144 of her own collection, many of which still reside at BCR.

Although Baskin refused to be interviewed on camera for the WTSP report, before the report even aired, Baskin posted a rebuttal, accusing "animal abusers" of spreading lies about her. Who are telling the lies? Baskin had literally thousands of her duped supporters writing to Mr. Deeson and the producers of the show with complaints; again, before the news report even aired! 

It is the lies, deceit, and fraud perpetrated by Carole Lewis Baskin that continue to fuel the fires of the animal rights activists. Groups like HSUS and PeTA will continue to look the other way as long as they accept Baskin's large donations of money. Carole Lewis Baskin and Big Cat Rescue are nationally known, and should also be nationally exposed. Will you help us? Please post the link to this website to every facebook page, networking and news media site you can find, and hope along with us that someone, somewhere, will listen.

BBB Wise Giving Alliance Comment

Despite written BBB Wise Giving Alliance requests in the past year, this organization has declined to be evaluated in relation to the Alliance's Standards for Charity Accountability. While participation in the Alliance's charity review efforts is voluntary, the Alliance believes that failure to participate may demonstrate a lack of commitment to transparency. Without the requested information, the Alliance cannot determine if this charity adheres to the Standards for Charity Accountability. A charity's willing disclosure of information beyond that typically included in its financial statements and government filings is, in the Alliance's view, an expression of openness that strengthens public trust in the charitable sector.
