What Happened To Carole Baskin's Daughter Jamie?

Although Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness revolves around the rise and fall of zookeeper Joe Exotic, the Netflix docu-series also dives into his longtime rivalry with Carole Baskin. Much like Exotic, Baskin's story is one that the public seems unable to keep their eyes off of. Tiger King delves into Baskin's three marriages, including the disappearance of her second husband, Don Lewis. Prior to her marriage to Lewis, Baskin described her relationship with her first husband, Michael Murdock, as "extremely abusive," per Bustle. According to the outlet, Baskin "married Murdock at 17, and had their daughter Jamie shortly afterward."

Baskin left Murdock at the age of 24. As she explained in Tiger King, she was upset and walking down the side of the road after a fight with Murdock when Lewis approached her in his car. Per TMZ, Baskin and Lewis tied the knot the same year she divorced her first husband, implying that Jamie was relatively young when Baskin met Lewis. While Jamie is barely mentioned in the docu-series, we did a little digging to find out exactly what happened to Jamie Murdock.

Is Jamie Murdock following in Carole Baskin's footsteps (or paw prints)?

Much like her mother, Carole Baskin, Jamie Murdock is very active in the big cat community. As of this writing, Murdock serves as the president of Baskin's Big Cat Rescue, an animal sanctuary for, well, big cats. In addition to caring for animals, the Big Cat Rescue website also acknowledges Murdock as an award-winning photographer. Additionally, she "is the staff photographer and publishes [the sanctuary's] quarterly Big Cat Times newspaper."

"Jamie is also a licensed wildlife rehabilitator and manages the sanctuary's bobcat rehab program," Murdock's biography also notes. "She has successfully raised, rehabilitated and released many wild Florida bobcats and leads expeditions into the release sites to track and camera trap wild bobcat populations."

Between running the Big Cat Rescue online shop and coordinating fundraising efforts, Murdock also applies her creativity to her art studio called Dancing Butterfly Arts, which also has an Etsy shop. According to the shop's bio, Murdock sells a "quirky and wild collection of handmade gifts, squirrel picnic tables, original art, paw print art, tiger, lion, leopard, jaguar, bobcat, lynx watercolor art, picture frames, woodcrafts, antiques, pendants, bracelets, earrings, antiques, beer caddys, shelves and more."

From the look of things, Murdock seemingly prefers to stay out of the spotlight and simply take care of operations at Big Cat Rescue. She's heavily involved with the organization and appears to be following in her mother's footsteps.
