'Tiger King's Carole Baskin Sues Netflix Over Season 2

Tiger King star Carole Baskin is suing Netflix for using footage of her in season two of the show.

She says she only signed a release for the first season.

"Understanding that the Appearance Releases limited Royal Goode Productions' use of the footage of the Baskins and Big Cat Rescue to the single, initial documentary motion picture, the Baskins believed that any sequel – though odious – would not include any of their footage," the court document reads.

Carole was surprised to see herself in the trailer for the second season.

In the trailer, the documentary tries to find out what happened to Carole's late husband Don Lewis -- who some suspect she fed to her tigers.

"Also, 'Tiger King 1' incorrectly suggests an equivalency between Big Cat Rescue and Joe Exotic's roadside zoo, and more broadly that there is no difference between roadside zoos that exploit and mistreat animals and accredited sanctuaries that rescue and provide excellent lifetime care to the animals. Perhaps most pernicious is the overarching implication in 'Tiger King 1' that Carole Baskin was involved in the disappearance of her first husband in 1997."
