TAMPA, FL–Carole Baskin, owner of Big Cat Rescue, recently gained public attention for her role in the Netflix documentary series Tiger King and ongoing feud with Joe Exotic. With Joe Exotic now in prison, Baskin has set her sights on a new opponent: supervillain Kraven the Hunter.
“Mr. Kravinoff, a.k.a. Kraven, is just as bad as Joe Exotic in many ways,” Baskin recently stated in a video. “Not only does he wear the skin of wild cats, but he also exploits animals as part of his ongoing personal vendetta against Spider-Man. The streets of New York are no place for big cats to be roaming free!”
Baskin added, “In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if Kraven is just Joe Exotic out of jail and in disguise. Really, how many other people would actually wear that mustache out in public?”
Baskin has also called out other public figures for their alleged abuse of big cats–including King Ezekiel of the Kingdom. According to sources, the self-appointed monarch kept a live tiger in an abandoned school building that had also been converted into the dwelling place of dozens of other people. Baskin said, “It was a very restricting environment for a jungle cat. Something had to be done.”
Strangely, King Ezekiel, once featured in the Walking Dead comics, mysteriously disappeared around 2015. While there have been whispers of foul play pointing out that Ezekiel’s body was never found, Baskin doesn’t seem to think it’s anything to lose one’s head over. “He probably just wandered off somewhere,” she told Marvelous Movies while feeding large chunks of unspecified meat through her personal meat grinder in her basement. “But we may never know what really happened to him.”
