Ernie "Turtleman" Brown wrestles a snapping turtle he pulled from a pond in Lebanon, Ky. The turtle trapping, which Brown has repeated thousands of times over four decades, has earned him the nickname "Turtleman" around his hometown of Lebanon. His new show on Animal Planet, "Call of the Wildman," has him serving as a kind of bare-handed exterminator, helping people rid their property of pesky critters and nuisance animals, like raccoons, rats, coyotes, skunks and possums
