The series follows Brown and his friend Neal James through adventures in Kentucky removing critters from places where they aren’t wanted and releasing them in their natural habitats. Brown’s signature is diving into ponds to capture snapping turtles, but in the first season, he also took on raccoons, rattlesnakes, cows and his favorite, skunks.
The new season will take Brown beyond the Kentucky state lines and even south of the border, to Mexico. Some of the “live action” that Animal Planet promises in Kentucky and beyond include:
~ Brown’s mom joining him to rid her pond of the turtles he has had since childhood.
~ A visit to Louisville’s Waverly Hills Sanatorium, which has been featured on SyFy’s “reality” show Ghost Hunters, where Brown has to root out some animals that have disturbed the regular paranormal tours.
~ Birds in the Marion County Court House that are literally messing up renovation efforts.
~ A search for a missing llama, a creature that Brown had never dealt with.
~ A one-hour special featuring Brown’s and James’ first international rescue, in Mexico.
Since premiering, Call of the Wildman has gained a healthy following, particularly among kids who enjoy the animals and Brown’s big personality, including his yell.
New episodes will air at 9 p.m. Sundays, starting June 2.
