Live Action! Turtleman rids Ball Park of unwanted critters

Posted: Updated:
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Animal Planet's Ernie Brown Jr., affectionately know as ‘Turtleman', helped rid Great American Ballpark of some unwanted critters back in May.

Turtleman is the star of Animal Planet's 'Call or the Wildman'. The show follows Turtleman and his team around as the Turtleman helps locals catch pesky and unwanted animals. 

How does the Turtleman catch these critters? Bare-handed, of course. 

Groundskeepers at Great American Ball Park discovered a critter denned up in the team's batting cages under the ballpark. The Reds enlisted the help of Turtleman to nab the unwanted furry fan before it became a major league problem.

While in Cincinnati, the Lebanon Kentucky native threw out a ceremonial first pitch at a Reds game.

The episode is set to air on Sunday evening at 9:00 p.m.
