Bad Bad Thing Award Goes to 'Call of the Wildman' for Bringing Snakes to the Pool!

By Kirby Robinson

Animal Planet's
"Call of the Wildman"
for Bringing Snakes to the Pool

Earlier this month we wrote: Say it's not so A&E along with the BIO Channel caught faking paranormal shows. Now the Animal Planet hit show Call of the Wildman, caught faking stuff and that's a bad bad thing.

No, it's not a staged dead time. Some paranormal investigator isn't caught opening doors and pounding on walls. Instead, Animal Planet has joined the ranks of networks allowing fake reality shows.

Ernie Brown Jr. a/k/a "Turtleman" host of the show Call of the Wildman was caught staging a scene for the sole purpose of ratings. That's a BAD BAD THING.

I live in Kentucky and I can shine a little light on this subject. There is a guy called Jim Harrison that runs this snake pit that he calls the KY Reptile Zoo. For some reason (perhaps jealousy) Jim and his wife have been on a personal crusade to discredit this show ever since it first aired. When Jim saw this episode he contacted the media and told them that cottonmouth's reside in Western KY, not Central KY. While this is true for the most part, some KY residents swear that they have seen an occassional cottonmouth in Central KY.

It is also possible that these snakes were "pet snakes" that either escaped or were turned loose in Danville. Some people even believe that the jealous owner of a "snake pit" might have turned these animals loose in hopes they would call the Turtleman to catch them.

On the other hand, the crew could have turned the snakes loose in the pool. However, jumping into a pool with a real cottonmouth, definitely isn't the safest way to catch one, and if anything, they may have wanted to stage a scene that would be more dangerous and sensational than what one would normally encounter.
Personally, I don't understand what the big deal is. They were definitely real snakes and it was a dangerous stunt.
