A PERSON was allegedly attacked and bitten during a terrifying incident at Carole Baskin's Big Cat Rescue.
The reported attack took place at roughly 8am on Thursday morning.
The victim's injuries are unknown, however they are expected to survive.
The sanctuary is owned by Tiger King and Dancing with the Star's icon Carole Baskin.
The Sun has contacted Big Cat Rescue for comment.
The news comes just weeks after The Sun exclusively revealed that Baskin gifted properties worth hundreds of thousands of dollars to her handyman shortly after husband Don Lewis's disappearance.
The new twist comes after handyman Kenny Farr's ex-wife Trish claimed he told her Don was ground up and fed to the alligators.
A cadaver dog also recently picked up the scent of human remains just meters from a lake house that once belonged to Don, raising further questions about the mysterious case, which gained worldwide attention in the docu-series Tiger King.
Investigator Jim Rathman, who conducted a lengthy probe into the case for Tigers, Lies and Cover Ups, an Investigation Discovery documentary, says he uncovered unusual connections between Carole, Don and Kenny including how Kenny brought home all of Don's gun collection around the time he went missing.
Property records shared with The Sun also show how Kenny was gifted six properties by Carole for under $20k – when they were worth 15 times that sum, according to property records in Florida.
Carole hit back against the claims, telling The Sun the properties were not gifts as she was just trying to help him get started in business and he later signed them back over.
“[Kenny's ex wife] Trish revealed that missing link to me telling me about the property transfers," Jim told The Sun.
“Baskin gave multiple properties to Kenny, just a month after her husband went missing.
"And these transactions were under $10k value, which you do not have to report to the IRS.
"But they were worth hundreds of thousands.
“I mean I care for the handyman that fixes up my house, but I don’t think I am going to gift him six properties."
Kenny, now a landscape gardener, refused to respond to Rathmann’s questions during his investigation, even when confronted in person but he has previously stated that he has had nothing to do with Don's disappearance.
“You have to be fair to the fact Kenny could have answers to this, but my gut feeling, with my experience levels, if it were me accused of these accusations, which I had nothing to do with is that I would want to clear my name," he said.
“Because if I have nothing to hide and I can speak to the family on the information they need, It provides closure for the family and I want to clear my name.
“The fact he is not is surprising and puzzling.”
Jim, an ex-secret service agent and homicide detective, added: “He spoke to detectives way back, after Trish told Hillsborough Police about recovering Don’s firearms.
“I believe he took a polygraph, but what information is out there now is a completely different set of questions that he would be asked.
"He may have been off the radar 23 years ago, but there are a lot of questions now.”
Jim has handed details of his independent probe to Joe Exotic’s “Team Tiger”, who are working on having the eccentric zoo-keeper's 22 year murder-for-hire prison sentence quashed.
