    Wild Man sits in a chicken coop and waits for the fox to come in then he catches it with his bare hands.
    Here is what killed me (no pun intended). In order to catch the fox in the chicken coop he has to have a door installed on the pop door. So after the fox enters he can drop the door.
    UHHHHH maybe, just maybe if there was a door on the pop door that was closed each evening the fox wouldn't have been a problem.
    Then his payment for his services was a "prized hen" which really appeared to me like a cornish cross rooster!!!!!!!!!
    After it was over I felt like the whole thing was a "set up" and I wasn't buying it.

    Its called "Call of the Wild Man". I dont think its set up. I think that where he is located thats just what you do. In the first episode I saw he got $22 & an apple pie [​IMG] for catching a non venomous snake. Either way that guy is INSANE lol. You do have a good point about the pop door though. Not sure what to think about the hen...

    It definately does sound setup. But I didn't see it so I can't say for sure.

    If any one wants to watch the shortened version of the episode specifically about the fox it can be seen here, & its called Turtleman Gets Foxy. It doesnt include the part about the prized hen though [​IMG].

    Eta: The full episode can be seen here

    The one I saw was him looking for a snapper in a family pond, but in one scene the pond was covered in algae and the next it wasn't and then it was again. I did catch me as kinda strange, but that is Live Action. [​IMG]

    I'm guilty of watching it. I love how he grabs a critter then rolls around playing it up for the camera.
