Carole Baskin, whose tiger will anticipate the winner, knocks ‘careless’ fans participating in Super Bowl
Carole Baskin isn’t delighted that thousands of fans are going to be allowed to attend the Super Bowl next week.
The “Tiger King” star, whose Huge Cat Rescue sits less than 15 miles from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, slammed the decision to enable 22,000 fans participate in next Sunday’s video game in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Baskin, of course, increased to fame in the United States after the Netflix documentary “Tiger King” premiered in March. Joe Exotic, whose unique animal park in southern Oklahoma was the focus of the documentary, was sentenced to 22 years in prison in 2015 for attempting to have Baskin eliminated, amongst other things.
One of her cats, Dutchess, will really predict whether the Kansas City Chiefs or Tampa Bay Buccaneers will win the Super Bowl during a YouTube event on Thursday.
Baskin’s Big Cat Rescue did stop providing tours in March due to the pandemic– something that has actually hit Florida harder than a lot of other states in the nation. The state, which has actually repeatedly neglected or stopped working to carry out fundamental social distancing guidelines and other precautions, has tape-recorded more than 1.7 million verified cases of the coronavirus given that the pandemic started, according to The New York Times. Only California and Texas have taped more. 10,500 of those cases came in the last week, too, the fourth-most in the nation.
Still, despite her involvement in the big video game, Baskin isn’t pleased with the thousands of fans who will be at the stadium on Sunday night.
