Tiger King’s Carole Baskin Headed to Arkansas for Big Cat Event
Carole Baskin, who rose to national fame on the hit Netflix documentary "Tiger King" is headed to Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
According to a press release, Baskin along with her husband Howard will be helping Turpentine Creek celebrate their 31st Anniversary on April, 29, from 3:30-8 PM.
Feast With the Beasts
The event is named, "Feast with the Beasts" Guests who attend this event will be treated to a Happy Hour in the Discovery Area surrounded by the tigers.
There will be live music, cocktails, appetizers, and a special tram tour followed by dinner for guests, and Carole and Howard will be speaking at the special event.
Part of the celebration centers around new legislation that was recently signed into law, the Big Cat Public Safety Act. Never-before-seen-footage of rescues will be shown as well as guests can bid on items in the silent and live auction with proceeds benefitting the animals.
If you are looking for a place to stay, the historic Crescent Hotel and the Best Western Inn of the Ozarks have special rooms blocked for this event but you must book by no later than April 1.
Tickets for "Feast for the Beasts" are limited and are available here.
In January, Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge was called upon to help Missouri Game and Fish capture an African serval that was seen roaming the area for six months. Looking similar to a bobcat it was not known how it turned up in the region.
