"Call of the Wildman" Season 2 is a reality docu-series on Animal Planet.

Dive deep into the backwoods of wild Kentucky with legendary woodsman Ernie Brown Jr. — aka "Turtleman" — as he takes on some of the most outlandish and outrageous nuisance calls these woods have to offer — including raccoons, skunks, snakes, venomous spiders and possums. Ernie is a charming animal lover with an unbelievable Bluegrass lifestyle, and for the past three decades, he's been diving into Kentucky's murkiest ponds in search of feisty snapping turtles capable of biting through bone. Accompanied by his canine companion Lolly and armed with country wits as sharp as the steel blade he carries, aptly named "Thunder," Turtleman has the uncanny ability to catch monster snapping turtles with his bare hands and return them into the wild unscathed.

Each week, Turtleman receives calls from dozens of businesses and home owners stuck with unwanted and potentially deadly pests. No job is too tough or dangerous for Turtleman, and his years of bonding with wild animals allow him to use his animal instincts to save them. Never traditional but always effective, Turtleman uses pure instinct and his bare hands to go toe-to-claw with some of the most dangerous critters in Kentucky, but it's always for the animal's own good. With a "trademark" celebratory yell following each successful capture, Turtleman's self-taught trapping style allows him to safely reintroduce frisky critters to nature.



Season 2

With the phenomenon of Turtleman taking America by storm, Ernie is now busier than ever — protecting homes and businesses from new and wilder varmints including coyotes, llamas, venomous snakes, pigeons, skunks, crocodiles and even bulls! Assisted by his crew of backwoods buddies, aptly named "Team Turtle" and featuring banjo-toting Neal James, the "Live Action" is at an all-time high, and Turtleman isn't leaving any stones (or ponds) unturned.

And with winter quickly approaching, a little cold weather isn't going to stop this turtle team from seeking out critters in new and exotic locations. Later this season, Ernie and Neal are the ultimate turtles out of water, expanding their live-action repertoire across state lines to Texas and even south of the border to Mexico for a one-hour special episode highlighting their first international animal rescue. Now, Ernie is out of his comfort zone but always at the top of his game to safely return pesky varmints back to nature.

Bare-handed animal rescues featured this season include the following:

• Catching turtles becomes a family affair when Ernie receives a frantic call from his mother — aka Turtlemom — asking him to relocate his childhood snapping turtles, which have been occupying her pond for the last three decades. But little does he know that Turtlemom is looking for some live action herself and jumps at the chance to assist Ernie with the rescue.

• Kentucky's infamous Waverly Hills Sanatorium is a hot bed for paranormal activity ... and ghostly varmints. When uninvited critters crash the owner's nightly paranormal tours, Team Turtle is called in to solve the mystery and discover what has been disturbing the dead.

• A farmer's prized bull is missing in action, and Turtleman is called to locate the giant beast. But the clock is ticking as Team Turtle races to locate the bull before it terrorizes the neighborhood's cattle.

• The old Marion County courthouse is in the process of being converted into a heritage center, but workers are finding themselves cleaning up bird droppings instead of working on the building itself! Team Turtle is out to uncover the hiding spot of these unpleasant pigeons and relocate them for good.

• An alpaca farm's guard llama is on the loose, and Turtleman is asked to rescue the runaway culprit. But there's a catch — Turtleman has never seen a llama in the wild and recruits Neal to help locate "mama llama" and get her back home safely.

"Call of the Wildman" Season 2 is produced by Sharp Entertainment for Animal Planet. Matt Sharp is the executive producer for Sharp Entertainment. Dawn Sinsel is executive producer for Animal Planet.
