    I stopped at my local gas station after work to get a 12er and out the door walked the Turtle Man. I asked him why he was in Fairmont, WV and he said he was on his way to Delaware to catch a shark! He was very cool when people there wanted photo's and autographs.

    There is a show on the Animal Planet channel called "Call of the Wildman". He travels around the state of Kentucky grabbing animals, snakes, turtles or anything that is causing problems for people. He is fearless and grabs everything with his hands!

    Where the hell did he come up with live action for a taped show? I admit it the show is kind of intertaining some time.

    The guy is a nut but actually seems to know a decent amount about the animals he catches. You wouldn't catch me doing half the shit he does, especially the one where he caught a skunk by hand... For those of you who don't watch the show, that episode ended with him needing a tomato bath :laugh:

    And... he drive a Yota! :bananadance:

    he doesnt strike me as being an idiot, as he is portraid on the show.

    I think the editor of the show has him act in such ways

    I stood there and talked to him for 5 minutes, he seemed completely normal to me. I think Animal Planet tells him to be extreme so people stay interested in the program.
