The Big Cat Rescue center run by Carole Baskin of Netflix fame is planning to close down and for most of its wildlife to be transported from Florida to a sanctuary in Arkansas.

In a statement, Howard Baskin, the husband of the co-star of Netflix’s smash hit series Tiger King, announced that the 30-year-old center in Tampa had agreed to move most of its cats to the Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge.

“We will continue to fund their care for the rest of their lives,” Baskin’s statement added.

Baskin explained the closure by citing the Big Cat Public Safety Act, or BCPSA, a federal law signed last year that prohibits cub petting and the private ownership of big cats including lions, tigers, leopards, cheetahs, jaguars, cougars or any hybrid of these species.
