YouTube rejected videos that were uploaded to YouTube by Carole Baskin, CEO of Big Cat Rescue, who was attempting to display Doc Bhagavan Antle’s cats in a manner that was not approved by him. Permission was not asked to use these videos, and Carole attempted to use the videos to make Doc Bhagavan Steve Antle look bad. Because of this, YouTube agreed to remove the videos and double flagged Carole Baskin’s account. Carole Baskin has complained to YouTube stating that she does not need permission from the owner of the cats to show the videos.

Doc Bhagavan Antle takes it personally and takes it seriously when the animals he works so hard to preserve are used in a vicious manner.

Statement from Carole Baskin: “I am Carole Baskin, CEO of Big Cat Rescue and the YouTube account is BigCatRescue. My email address is MakeADifference@BigCatRescue.org and our site administrator’s email that is used on the YouTube account is FilmCrew@BigCatRescue.org. Our business address is 12802 Easy Street Tampa, FL 33625 813.920.4130 and our home website is http://www.BigCatRescue.org”.
“I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.”

Mistake? Is she stating she “accidentally” put the videos on YouTube thinking they were hers?

Kevin Antle has filed similar claims with GoDaddy.com, google.com and others. There are better ways to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars when so many big cats are being used, abused and discarded by an industry, then to attempt to use others videos and pictures in a way that is harmful to the preservation of the cats.

Though Carole Baskin states, “If I were to learn that I was posting, or allowing the posting of copy right protected material, it would be removed immediately.” she still claims using videos and pictures of animals that are not hers is ok to do.
