A messy business
Joe’s hatred for Carole didn’t subside with time, but the other way around, and we can’t say we blame him for that. Her main goal was closing down his zoo – his life’s work – and take away his animals. A man like Joe wasn’t going to sit by and watch that happen. Carole had accused Joe and the like of him, pretty much every owner of wild cats in the country, of animal abuse.
Is she really the only saint? If you ask Joe, they way she treats the big cats in her sanctuary isn’t much different than his zoo. It’s hard to say why – perhaps because he was the only one who has stood up to her, taunted her and threatened her – Joe had become Carole’s biggest enemy, and vice versa.
