The family of Carole Baskin reacts to decades-long feud between “Tiger King” star Carole Baskin and the daughters of her “dead” husband Don Lewis.

In a statement provided on Friday, Lewis’ offspring — Donna Pettis, Lynda Sanchez, and Gale Rathbone — clap back at Baskin’s stunning claim that he has been found “alive and well” in Costa Rica.

“It’s simply not true,” the daughters claimed before accusing Baskin of manipulating a letter seen in Netflix’s “Tiger King 2” in order to create “a different narrative” about Lewis’ disappearance.

Lewis vanished without a trace in August 1997 and was declared legally dead in 2002.Baskin, 61, has vehemently denied any involvement in her millionaire spouse’s mysterious disappearance and has blasted rumors that she put his body through a meat grinder and fed it to tigers at her animal rescue ranch in Tampa, Florida.

During an interview on Thursday, Lewis family spokesperson, Jack Smith, also blasted Baskin. He said her “alive and well” claim reeks of desperation and is a blatant bid to deflect speculation that she may know crucial details about Don’s disappearance.

“I think she’s just trying to do anything she can to clear her name,” Smith said, adding that Lewis’ three daughters have been upset with her assertions.
