Tiger King’s Carole Baskin eyes up own reality show to confront animal abusers

Tiger King star Carole Baskin is lining up a new reality telly show to expose animal cruelty.

The Big Cat Rescue chief revealed she is planning the programme with the help of ITV Studios.

Carole, 59, was this week eliminated from the US version of Strictly – Dancing With the Stars.

But she has big plans for more telly.

She said: “We’re actually shopping a show with Think Factory (a TV production firm).

“[It] will be going after the animal abusers, bringing them to justice and then hopefully getting the animals into accredited sanctuaries.

“So, I’m really hoping the Think Factory can sell that.”

ITV bought LA-based Thinkfactory Media seven years ago.

Carole has starred in Netflix’s Tiger King, which saw her nemesis Joe Exotic jailed in January for trying to hire a hitman to kill her.

But the show sparked questions about the disappearance of her second husband Don Lewis in 1997. She has denied any involvement.

The probe into Lewis vanishing has been reopened and TV shows have made allegations about Carole’s past.

But the animal worker said her focus is on “getting in the jacuzzi with my husband” Howard after her reality dance show stint.

She added: “I have missed that.

“They’ve been so supportive. I’m coming home, they’re even more thrilled.”

The reality TV star is set to soon be grilled by lawyers for the first time over her first hubby going missing.

Homicide detective Jim Rathmann carried out an independent probe into the unsolved case.

He said there are many “red flags” around Lewis’s final hours, adding his family’s lawyers will “not hold back” probing Carole.

Rathmann alleges “foul play” is likely, adding: “I believe that there is a few hours window where something more than likely happened to Don.”

It emerged this week that a dog picked up the scent of “human remains” in a lake on the back of Carole’s Florida house.

But due to the muddy conditions, divers could not see anything.

Rathmann believes the lake area could be drained and a full scale probe should take place.

The claims appear in upcoming US show Joe Exotic: Tigers, Lies And Cover Up.
