Personally I find that offensive. One point of clarification, though. He actually did them for real, just as he used to before the show ever existed. Kentucky Sports Radio University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible. The Turtleman Show was Fake.

August 26, at Seven Ate Nine August 27, at 4: Obligatory totally unrelated Trump reference made my some loser in every single comment section. BigBlueBass August 27, at 7: I got the famous part, but I haven't got the rich part figured out yet. I'm the poorest famous guy around. If you could tell my fans to send my stamped, self-addressed envelopes I'd appreciate it. I try to answer each and every one.
Aside from his giant knife, raccoon-tail cap, and wildman yelp, the Turtleman is also known for his dental deficiencies. Most people start correcting their oral hygiene the second they make any TV money , but not Turtleman.
An investigation effectively canceled the show
And sure, the natural inclination here is to think "His family was diving into ponds for dinner, there's no way they ever went to the dentist," but it seems nature didn't even have a chance to rot out those chompers, because a series of gruesome accidents did it first. The first one, a guy swung a chainsaw around and hit me in the face while we clearing some brush. That took stitches to sew me back up. I lost a few teeth there," he recalled. I tried to gas it like the Dukes of Hazzard to get over a ditch and into a cornfield.
I didn't make it over the ditch.

Since this man's life has been marked with a unique and terrifying inclination towards mortal danger, it should be no surprise that a turtle almost killed him once. He actually told Channel Guide Magazine that he's been bitten 33 times by the deceivingly docile-seeming creatures, "and every one of them hurt like heck.
I almost bled to death. He kept the bite stories rolling with another example of when a snapper got him in "the place down yonder.
Shocker! The Turtleman Show was Fake | Kentucky Sports Radio
Isn't almost dying from turtle bites hilarious, y'all?! Controversies and goofy stories aside, the Turtleman seems to have a genuine and admirable interest in helping people. He's constantly plugging charitable causes on his Facebook page, and he even once partnered with the Wirt County Office of Emergency Services in West Virginia to hold a donation drive on behalf of the residents whose water was contaminated by chemicals leaked into the nearby Elk River.
By the end of the drive, volunteers "had filled three 5-ton National Guard trucks with donations," which included "bottled water, paper products and utensils, baby wipes and other needed items for folks who've been days without usable water," according to The Herald Dispatch. Of his decision to lend his celebrity to the cause, Turtleman told the paper, "Since I have been a little kid we never had running water and that is still the way it is today, so I know what it is like now to have no water to drink.
I collect rainwater for washing but for drinking water, I have to go over to my mom's. When I seen these people in trouble and in need, I knew I had to help. I know what it's like. Because they need to be run out of the entertainment industry indefinitely. Surprisingly, the Turtleman doesn't keep many pets. In fact, the only domesticated animal he keeps around is his dog, Lolly, who was featured prominently on the show. But in an interview with Hollywood Soapbox , he explained there's still a good amount of wildlife in and around his house, including two cats that run mice control as well as a snake named Sir Lancelot that "just comes and goes as it pleases," but also takes care of any mice on the inside.
Sounds like he's got a significant vermin issue as well as what appears to be a wild snake who has a back door key. Oh, and we almost forgot about the turtle, because of course there's one of those.

It ain't a pet. It got ran over when it was real little.

The untold truth of Turtleman
That's a live action true story," he boasted. So just to recap, that's a house full of mice that two feral cats can't keep up with, a snake who crashes on the couch when he feels like it, and a Frankenturtle with an attitude. Along with country artist Steve Oliver, Turtleman is in the process of putting together a series of albums that will tell the story of his life. He recently announced the first single, " Turtleman Strong ," which he's already turned into a music video. This is an ambitious undertaking for the Turtleman to say the least; according to this Facebook video , he and Oliver have taken the past two years to write 90 songs that they plan on turning into three total albums.
Turtleman's comin' back Turtleman strong," the Kentucky wildman insists at the end of the video. He—or someone running his page—also addressed a question about his now-defunct show, saying, "Actually, the contract with the production company expired and they parted ways. Future TV projects are being considered…" Which leads us to…. Though his trapping methods are decidedly low-tech, the Turtleman has embraced the wave of new media, launching his very own YouTube channel. As of this writing, the channel has been up for over three weeks and has just subscribers, so the word on the Turtleman's new venture is obviously not out yet.
Or it could be that without professional staging, his adventures aren't quite so entertaining, like this video where a monkey pets his arm for awhile, or this one where he gets a haircut. In another video , he does "relocate" a snake that's hanging out in the rafters of a cabin at the Little Ponderosa Zoo, although we eventually find out that the snake, who even has a name—Earl—has lived there for 12 years.
Not exactly the "live action" of capturing potentially rabid raccoons, but the zoo patrons seemed to love it, and the Turtleman is back to doing what he does best. The untold truth of Turtleman.
