Allen Glover, 51, was hired by the flamboyant former owner of GW Exotic Animal Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma to murder Big Cat Animal Rescue owner Baskin in exchange for $3,000 in 2017.

But he said: ‘I never had any intention of harming Carole, let alone kill her. 

‘I was working for Joe at the time and I just couldn’t stand being around Joe anymore and I wanted to get out of there and go back to South Carolina. But I didn’t have any money to leave, I was only making $150/week.’

Glover later testified against Joe at trial, where Joe was found sentenced to 22 years in prison for the plot to kill Baskin, as well as numerous animal violations, including five tigers. 

Glover said he doesn’t believe Joe will last long in prison saying: ‘He’s not going to ever set foot alive outside of prison again, he won’t do his full sentence, I give him five years at most before he’s dead.’     

Glover added: He knows he’s never getting out and that sets the course for depression, I wouldn’t be surprised if he even makes it out of medical where he is currently being housed.

Glover added: ‘One day while driving with Joe I told him I can take care of that for you,’ he said, ”really?” I’ve never seen him so happy.

‘I had to make Joe really believe I wanted to kill Carole in order to get the money so I could get out of there and back to South Carolina.’

Joe originally offered Glover $5,000 but only ended up paying him $3,000 because of lack of funds.

After they both agreed on the price, Joe then hatched his convoluted plan to kill Baskin, who lived in Florida. 

Joe instructed his former husband John Finlay to take Glover to Dallas to get a fake ID card, to use the ID for bus trips and hotel stays. 

Glover said he had a ‘half a**ed’ fake ID made, using the name John McDowell Allen. 

He then flew to South Carolina to sort some things out and then he was instructed to take a bus down to Tampa to kill Baskin.

But Joe kept changing his mind on how he wanted Glover to kill Baskin. 

At first he wanted him to shoot her, then he wanted Glover to wait in the bushes outside her property and shoot her with a bow and arrow, before changing his mind again told Glover to cut Baskin’s head off and ‘feed her out to the swamps.’

Glover admitted he did take a bus down to the Tampa area, but not to kill Carole. Instead, he ‘partied, bought drugs, alcohol and women with the money.’

Glover was staying within miles of Baskin’s house, and at one point he thought about telling her about Joe’s plan to kill her, but decided against it, saying: ‘I would be in jail too, I didn’t want to get involved. ‘

Glover thinks Joe’s 22-year prison sentence is justified, saying: ‘He deserves every year he got, he screwed so many people over.’ He added: ‘He thought he was going to play me, but it looks like I got the last laugh’

Glover said he returned back to South Carolina and when Joe found out he didn’t kill Baskin, he called him yelling and screaming, demanding his money back.

‘My only plan the entire time was to drain every dime I could get from Joe, I hated that guy,’ Glover laughed.

‘Joe’s plan would have never worked, even if he had hired a legitimate ”hitman”.
