TIGER King has made Carole Baskin an international star but what exactly is the Big Cat Rescue owner up to these days.
We take a look at the cat lover's unbelievable story one year on from the show's airing and find out what she thinks of the Netflix phenomenon…
Where is Carole Baskin now?
Carole remains a big name in the Big Cat world and is still running Big Cat Rescue with her husband as she works with PETA to change laws about wild animal enclosures.
Since her appearance on Tiger King, Carole has enjoyed a number of television appearances, including a stint on Dancing With The Stars.
Carole has previously branded the Netflix documentary ‘salacious and sensational’ – claiming bosses ‘didn’t care about the truth’.
She wrote in a blog on her website: "When the directors of the Netflix documentary Tiger King came to us five years ago they said they wanted to make the big cat version of Blackfish (the documentary that exposed abuse at SeaWorld) that would expose the misery caused by the rampant breeding of big cat cubs for cub petting exploitation and the awful life the cats lead in roadside zoos and back yards if they survive.
"There are not words for how disappointing it is to see that the docuseries not only does not do any of that but has had the sole goal of being as salacious and sensational as possible to draw viewers."
Carole also addressed the way the series portrayed her first marriage to Don.
Don went missing in 1997 after 'going away to Costa Rica' and never returning.
He was declared legally dead in 2002, and Carole has vehemently denied Joe's accusations that she killed Jack and either buried his body under a septic tank, or fed him to her tigers.

Carole claimed: "[Tiger King] has a segment devoted to suggesting, with lies and innuendos from people who are not credible, that I had a role in the disappearance of my husband Don 21 years ago.
"The series presents this without any regard for the truth or in most cases even giving me an opportunity before publication to rebut the absurd claims.
"They did not care about truth. The unsavoury lies are better for getting viewers."
She also added: "Anyone who wants to put up the money to replace our sceptic tanks is welcome to dig them all up."
Joe Exotic is in the early stages of a 22-year prison sentence for a murder for hire plot against Carole Baskin.
