Zoo Wars XVIIII-I hardly know where to begin with this post…

OK…So SunState Federal Credit Union and Tower Publications Charity puts up a contest where you can nominate your favorite NFP on FaceBook…

USZA was in the lead to help with Rhino conservation…that is until someone decided, somewhere, that they were to be banned-WTF-They are a NFP and certainly has a large membership!!!

A group of college students joined in and the votes went wild for USZA…We were voting daily when suddenly, out of the blue, USZA was removed…As unfair as that is, I am not sure who to complain to about unfair contest practises…If anyone knows-please let me know-surely some agency regulates contests…SunState Federal Credit Union Bank…

SunState Federal Credit Union and Tower Publications Charity of the Month

SunState Federal Credit Union and Tower Publications Charity of the Month Contest

We feel the best way to find and recognize local charities in our communities is by asking you! If you know of a charitable organization making your community a better place, nominate them to win our Charity of the Month Contest on facebook.

Each month:

  • The charity with the most votes will receive a $1,000 donation and be profiled in one of Tower Publications quarterly magazines.
  • The person who nominated the winning charity will receive $300
  • One random voter will receive $100
  • $500 will be given to the charity of a randomly selected vote. Even if your charity isn’t in the running for the $1,000 donation, keep encouraging your supporters to vote – the more votes your charity gets each month, the better your chance of receiving that month’s $500 donation.

Entering is easy:

  • Go to facebook.com/SunStateFCU; click on Charity of the Month.
  • Upload an image representing the charity (their logo or a picture).
  • Write a brief description of how they make this community a better place.
  • Share with your friends and colleagues – ask them to vote for the charity on SunState’s Facebook page.
  • Everyone can vote once a day for the charity of their choice.

Winning charities and the individuals who nominated them will not be eligible to win again until the 3rd calendar month after they win. For example: if you win in February, you can enter again in May. Each month, vote balances return to zero for the upcoming month’s contest. All charities must provide relevant 501(c) paper work to claim their prizes. All prizes must be picked up in person at a SunState FCU branch by an official representative of the winning charity.

The winners were announced yesterday and of course BCR ran away with the votes with the USZA, a NFP organization gone…

“The winner of the Charity of The Month contest for May, and the $1,000 donation, is Big Cat Rescue. Carole Baskin will receive $300 for nominating the winning charity.

Remember, the contest has started over for the month of June, so start promoting your favorite eligible charity to be the June SunState Federal Credit Union Charity of The Month.

and then we read this:

Here’s the choke, I think I puked in my mouth on reading this:

Carole Baskin donated the $300 she won directly to Big Cat Rescue and Barry Janks donated the $100 prize he won directly to the Carson Springs Wildlife Conservation Foundation. We are constantly being surprised at just how selfless and giving this community can be. Thank you Carole and Barry for being such great role models and for being so passionate in support of your favorite charities!
Share this post to remind people how great this community is!”

So, I’m sharing!!!

Now a lot of people got really angry over that and posted on their wall…posts were deleted and it suddenly struck me as funny so I posted this…and coming from me, well, you know I was being sarcastic…

[blogger note: Only comments favorable to Big Cat Rescue and Carol Baskin have been left on their thread-all others removed and banned, LOL!!! That’s some ‘sharing’ community all right-too bad I missed the first comments…] Not wanting my comment removed, I wrote this:

“Yes, I am in agreement that it was truly selfless that Carole Baskin donated the $300.00 she won back to herself as CEO of Big Cat Rescue-Let us all give a big cheer and hats off to her for HER COMPLETELY SELFLESS DONATION TO HERSELF!!! I just love reading that-makes me all warm inside.”

Here’s the thread that was left and what has been mounting tonight [bloggers note-Names changed ]

    • Jumanji the black leopard has a story.
      He is said to have been declawed by his owners and that it is a horrific thing to do to a big cat. Jumanji almost ripped a womans arm off at that sanctuary as well. The story goes on to say that Jumanji was “rescued from the pet trade”. Right???? But the story fails to tell you WHO he was “rescued” from. He was BRED AND BORN right there at BCR as a PET for Jamie, the daughter of the CEO.
      THEY taught him to walk on a leash, THEY had him declawed and THEY are the ones that rescued him from THEMSELVES.
      Don’t believe me? A simple check of the USDA records for Wildlife on Easy Street (name was changed after a lawsuit was threatened to them and they became BCR). Same place, same owner.The CEO doesn’t tell you that the many cubs that were purchased from a fur farm , or as it is told “rescued” from the fur farm were placed in BUCKETS by themselves and most DIED because of lack of care. AND, the ones that did get sold “into the pet trade” died due to poor care prior to being sold.
      [bloggers note:WE RECEIVED ONE OF THOSE BUCKET BABIES (NOT KNOWING AT THE TIME and only recently exposed) THE ANIMAL DIED DAYS LATER!!!]
      The “bucket babies” are still being spoken of in the cat world and the stories of the horror are passed along. There are photos of said bucket babies along with the CEO on the internet if you look hard enough.Also, if it was a TRUE rescue of all the babies at the fur farm… then why not rescue the adult breeders? She didn’t bother telling the whole story there either. All the adult cats were left behind to continue breeding. It is said that there was a contract made that the fur farm would close down and that is a complete lie from what I’m told. The fur farm never signed a no breeding contract and they did eventually close, selling off their breeding stock because the owners got too old to care for them. The CEO didn’t bother calling back the irate customers and avoided all contact with them.I could go on with many other things about that place I HAVE BEEN THERE. I have pictures that I took MYSELF. The animosity comes from this: I will try and keep it short.
      I was not around the cat world when this happened but has been told to me by many that knew what happened back then.
      The CEO married a man that was loved in the animal world. He “disappeared” and she married her present husband. When she was married to the one that disappeared, they bred and bought and sold many animals. Common knowledge. Since so many of their babies died, and she refused to make it right with her customers, they turned on her, even the ones that spent countless hours and energy to help her do it right. She was ostracized from the animal world.
      In a revenge filled heart, she turned to animal rights and found her niche. This is when “she saw the light” and found a better way to profit off of the animals.BCR is a non profit that profits more than a million dollars every year. Yes, mostly ran by ignorant, loving volunteers that really love the animals and fall for the lies hook, line and sinker. The catch here is, is that there were and still are some not so good owners out there and she has figured out a way to use those owners to make ALL owners bad people. She even wrote a summary of WHAT AN EXOTIC PET OWNER IS.
      Dictating that all exotic pet owners are drug users (her words), all female owners are fat, slovenly, uneducated, druggie, man chasers and the men are abusive and only want to have exotics to show their power over God’s creatures. All pretty sick accusations from a woman that it seems to me, has described herself and her past relationships.Personally, I have researched the lies, cons and manipulations of said CEO for the past 9 years. And for the most part, I believe that she believes she is telling the truth, each time she changes the story to suit her own needs at that particular time. I think that is called narcissistic and psychopathic. But that is all in my own opinion.
      The stories that were invented about many of the cats there are just that… FABRICATED STORIES.
      Most of the cats were bought, bred and born at that very facility and now they have new stories on how they were “rescued from the pet trade”.
      And the ones that actually were rescued in the past have newer, more powerful stories of abuse, that simply are not the truth.It is a money making machine, all to bilk nice people out of their hard earned money and to hurt those owners and their proteges for the hurt they cause her so long ago.
      Well, that is why I have animosity. She wants to take my rights away to do what she has done almost her whole life.
      She has no formal training and denies others to have the life they choose with the animals they choose, all the while exempting herself….. because she is just that special.
      Remember, NO TRAINING….all trial and error and she wantS to dictate to everyone else that they cannot own the very same animals that she does.
      Kind of twisted isn’t it?”
  • CH-  isn’t that the place here the womans husband mysteriously disappeared
  • RA- Yeah, Darlene, a sanctuary where she takes a salary, and her husbands salary, oh, and don’t forget her daughters too!!! So yeah, it went to her personal funds.. She doesn’t work a full time job, nor even a part time job! She paraded around her animals blasting anyone that isn’t her, begging for donations, what, so she can eat dinner with PETA to keep them off her ass for feeding live domestic rabbits to her lions and tigers?? 

    And yes, I have been to her ROADSIDE ZOO!!! I am absolutely disgraced at the garbage that was mounting up in her cages that’s supposed to be “enrichment”??!!!
  •  SunState Federal Credit Union- While Facebook is an open forum, as we have stated before, we do not consider our page an appropriate venue for attacks of any kind on any non profit organizations and will block posters and posts associated with such activity.
  • RC- Thank you Sun State! The donation to BCR is so very well deserved. The amazing work they do is unequalled.
  • TP- Thank you so much, SunState! ^^
    And you are so right, we need more people who put the greater good ahead of their own, selfish needs
  • SG-You people are amazing! How do you think she can operate BCR without money? I’ll bet most of the negative comments come from those who have never been there. Never saw how much self sacrifice is involved. Ever hear of all the animals they rescue? Ever see where they are brought to heal physical and emotional injuries? Have any of you ever given as much of yourself to help the less fortunate to the same extant that BCR does? So small minded individuals. I still haven’t read an explanation for the hateful line of thinking. 
    BCR is a wonderful place. It’s staffed by mostly volunteers. They are good people.
    I’m done with all the uninformed people on this page, unless someone has the desire and intelligence to explain your animosity towards BCR.
  •             DG- B, she didn’t put the $ in her personal funds. She put it into the sanctuary. ( idiot )
    • RS- Yeah, HER sanctuary Darlene!
    • B- LOL!!! I hope she remembered to take the income tax out-she’s not NFP…BCR is and of course it’s also a tax deduction…Unless she convinced them to just make the check out to BCR then of course it didn’t cross her palm so she wasn’t awarded anything and gave BCR nothing…Who’s the idiot?!? No me, I assure you!!!

Not enough for me because I think it’s too damn funny they gave this woman credit for giving money to herself, ROTFLOL!!! Baskin told them to write the check to BCR…What, was she afraid she’d have to pay taxes on the money?!? And if she gave it to herself what was the big deal anyway?!?

So I made the same statement in the afternoon as a new thread-I just have to share these comments!!! I can only imagine what these comments would be if more people knew…Follow the link below if you too would like to post a comment…Oh what webs we weave when we practise to deceive…

Yes, I am in agreement that it was truly selfless that Carole Baskin donated the $300.00 she won back to herself as CEO of Big Cat Rescue-Let us all give a big cheer and hats off to her for HER COMPLETELY SELFLESS DONATION TO HERSELF!!! I just love reading that-makes me all warm inside.

  • KK- Maybe someone should take her cats away. Oh I forgot, she’s one of them that is in this bad business here in Florida. Wait and see as the truths come out. Conspiracy, fraud, and embezzlement.
  • CH- Is that a donation in your pocket or are you happy to see me?
  • B- So good of you to donate to the needy…BCR is needy I know because those cages need a ‘little repair and clean-up’…it’s so appreciated I am sure…

    [bloggers note: I did not say shameful and rusty or painted the same color as rust to deceive the USDA and FFW although I wanted to…not welded but in fact, no reinforcements and hog tied together-Tropical Storm Andrea headed that way…soon to be a mud-hole once again]

  • B- Oh yes, such selfless contributions from a millionaire should not go by without reward…Kudos to Ms.Baskin for yet another accomplishment of kindness upon the world in making it a better place for us all to rejoice in so she can almost single-handed rid the world of the evils of big cat ownership and we follow by example. I will sleep better tonight knowing of such a worldly contribution that did not go by unrecognized.
  • CH- Ill top Fred I’M going to move 100 dollars from one bank account to another then Im going to cook my ex husband and feed him to my rescue dogs
  • B- I bet Mr. Baker of Atchinson County, KS is thrilled at her win and selfless giving to herself…
  • B- Isn’t it though, poor thing, still not knowing where her husband is and all…so giving of all she has for those cats to live ‘high on the hog’…or is that…oh yes, such generosity is overwhelming…I am breathless!!!
  • CH- the generosity is touching !
  • CH- Woo hooo Shes my hero !
  • DJC- Yes, her stunning kindness and outright continuous giving till it hurts is what she is all about.
  • RA- I left my two cents!!! Lol
  • FL- That selfless contribution of Ms.Baskins has renewed my hope for humanity and my faith in black widows. I am so moved that I am now taking $10 from one pocket and putting it in another. Seriously, I hope the money comes in handy for clearing the annoying blockage in the septic tank.Spider Walking
    • B- I joined in and took 20 from my right pocket and placed it in my left…Is that tax deductible?!? I do hope that she isn’t put off about paying taxes on that $300.00…just saying…such generosity needs to be rewarded but Uncle Sam is not so generous I am afraid…He wants his take…
    • B- OH no, there was a hole in my pocket…
    • FL- Sorry. That’s the 20 bill I put in my other pocket…
    • B- OK then, same thing…not lost, you have it…just like giving it to myself then…
  • CH- yes I look up to her I wish I had the balls to have a disappearing husband my self
    Here’s the link to the SunState Federal Union FaceBook page: https://www.facebook.com/SunStateFCU?ref=stream&hc_location=stream
    Maybe you’d like to put your favorite 501-c-3 charity in the running for next months give away HOWEVER, I think it’s fixed (I’m entitled to my opinion of this ‘contest’)
    How anyone can praise this CEO of a  Roadside Zoo (FFW state she is NOT a Florida sanctuary) that attacks US citizens and their business and livelihood, finds it so delightful and fulfilling to make defaming posts on the Internet on an animal abuse site of she own creation about US citizens operating legal businesses and destroying peoples livelihoods, to promote herself and her own business, change laws, has the highest death rate of anyone, anywhere in this country of big cats is beyond contempt to me!!! I find it despicable!!!
    Zoo Wars was not created to attack Carole Baskins and BCR…It was created because of the misdeeds and there’s much to be learned from such behavior. LIES beget LIES and her latest explanation of her TRUE HISTORY is laughable!!! (Another post for another Zoo Wars edition) Not all animal sanctuaries are alike-PLEASE do not be deceived by this one-it’s a fools paradise…
