Carole Baskin Says She Thought She Was Being Kidnapped When a Black SUV Chased Her Down for a Selfie
Published Mar 23, 2021Since emerging as one of many complicated characters in Netflix's Tiger King, cat rescue activist Carole Baskin has had quite an interesting life. As you can imagine, it hasn't been the best experience for her. In fact, she says her "fans" often activate her "fight or flight" response.
"Being in a state of fight or flight kind of mode all the time is just a part of my life now," Baskin told Metro. "But the other day I was riding my bike home and a black SUV ran me off the road. Suddenly, everybody opens the doors and jumps out of the car and starts running toward me."
"I'm thinking I'm being kidnapped but they just wanted selfies," she continued. "That's how it goes now."
That said, she's still trying to keep up a positive attitude about the whole thing. "The reason that none of this gets me down is my belief that is matter how horrible things may be, they're always working out for the best," he added. "I think everything has a silver lining if we just look for it."
Silver lining or not, Baskin has explained that she will most certainly not be appearing in Tiger King Season 2.
