In the final installment in our three-part blog series, we reveal three reputational mistakes Tiger King’s Carole Baskin makes throughout the docuseries. The first and second posts highlight how Baskin’s on-screen behavior diminishes her credibility and ultimately takes the focus off her organization’s trifold mission of “providing the best home we can for the cats in our care, ending abuse of big cats in captivity and preventing extinction of big cats in the wild.”
Blunder #5 - A failure to set boundaries. If the filmmakers of Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness kept digging into Baskin’s personal life, what options did she have to maintain her credibility? Baskin had a choice to participate in the filming and did so with the intention of furthering her organization’s mission to protect big cats.
