Tampa Big Cat Rescue owner Carole Baskin announced today that she will be competing on Dancing with the Stars but a petition to remove her from the show has already cropped up with hundreds of signatures.

As of this publication, the petition has reached 386 signatures, citing Baskin’s involvement in the ongoing investigation into her ex-husband’s disappearance as the reason for wanting her taken off the program.

Someone who is a person of interest in a crime like this shouldn't be paraded on a show.

Though her ex-husband, Don Lewis, went missing in 1997 and declared legally dead in 2002, investigations continue with Baskin as a person of interest.

On the official Big Cat Rescue website, Baskin explained that she hopes to win the show's Mirrorball trophy and shed more light on the plight of trafficked animals.
