In her "Big Cat Briefing" video on YouTube this week, Baskin revealed that because of the added attention, she has installed extra security cameras on the property.

"Since this Tiger King thing, everybody wants to come down and have their picture made at the front gate, but we wanna make sure there aren't people doing anything bad there, so we installed more surveillance cameras that we can watch that have a motion sensor that alerts all of us on the phone as soon as somebody drives down our road," she said.

Fans in the comments made sure Baskin knows how much they appreciate her.

"Many thanks to all of you that take care of the poor cats that need your help to survive! I always wanted to volunteer there, but I now visit to show my support! See you again soon!" one said.

"Glad to see staff working so well to take care of these beautiful cats. Thank you all," another wrote.

"Thank you for doing so much for the cats. They have a great home there. I know because I’ve been there," a third added.

"We are very disappointed that our facility was mentioned in the new Netflix series. We can only assume it is because Doc Antle has been such a high profile wildlife personality for so many decades that his association would create more buzz," he wrote in an Instagram post.

He added: "It is important to understand that this series is not a documentary; it’s sensationalized entertainment with paid participants. Tiger King is the bizarre story of Joe and Carole and their feud.

"These characters are not representative of experts in the wildlife sector or world class facilities like ours here in Myrtle Beach. Myrtle Beach Safari has been recognized by the state of South Carolina as one of the pre-eminent wildlife facilities in the United States. We’ve also received international accolades for the critical role we provide with our qualified, captive breeding programs and our global conservation efforts of threatened and endangered species."

Antle also lays out the guidelines his facility follows to make sure they are doing everything above-board:

"Myrtle Beach Safari adheres to all USDA guidelines, and our animals are treated with the utmost care. We have never had a USDA violation and work collaboratively with various state and federal wildlife agencies to ensure our animals receive the very best life each and every day. "
