Carole Baskin has offered a $5,000 reward for the safe rescue of a tiger which is on the loose in Houston, Texas.
The Tiger King star, 59, has released a statement on social media promising that she’ll hand over the cash to ‘the person responsible for the immediate, safe hand over of India the Tiger to a sanctuary that is accredited by the Global Federation of Sanctuaries.’
The Netflix star has shared her concern for the tiger’s well-being, and she urged fans to go out on the streets of Houston and search for the loose wild animal.
Speaking to TMZ, Carole admitted that she’s worried for the big cat, especially considering ‘the owners of the tiger have shown a serious lack of responsibility so far.’
Before she hands over the $5,000, Carole has insisted that anyone who finds India must work with law enforcement.
She insisted that efforts must be ‘sufficient to convict both buyer and seller involved in the transfers of the tiger.’
Carole told the publication that although she would love to care for India, the loose tiger will not be going to her Big Cat Rescue.
Instead, he will be accredited to a different big cat sanctuary that will provide lifetime care for the wild animal.
Carole’s generous reward revelation comes after the Tiger King star vowed to help get Joe Exotic out of prison.
Despite the fact that notorious Joe hired a hitman to kill her Carole, she says she would support his early release from a 22-year sentence on one condition.

Carole would consider helping out her arch-enemy if he promised to stop breeding tigers.
Her husband, Howard, told The Mirror: “If Joe were to come out and say, ‘I now know what I did was wrong and I want to help. I would like to support passage of the Big Cat Public Safety Act and stop this breeding.’
