Ernie Brown, Jr. net worth: Ernie Brown, Jr. is an American animal rescuer and reality television star who has a net worth of $1 million dollars. Ernie Brown, Jr. was born in Washington County, Kentucky and always loved animals. He spent much of his childhood exploring the woods and swamps around his home. He caught his first snapping turtle when he was seven, and went on to catch the largest snapping turtle on record, known as the "Loch Ness Turtle", when he was seventeen. The turtle weighed 55 pounds. He then went on to perform multiple jobs, such as working in construction and milking cows, before deciding to return to his first love of working with animals. He has made a career of catching snapping turtles humanely. To date, he has caught over 12,000. He has been injured several times, and it is believed that he captures approximately 300 turtles each year. He is one of the subjects of the popular Animal Planet series, "Call of the Wildman".
Call of the Wildman is an American reality television series that airs on the Animal Planet network. The third season of the series is currently airing. The show follows the exploits of Kentucky woodsman Ernie Brown, Jr., nicknamed "The Turtleman". Aided by his friend, Neal James, and his dog, Lolly, Brown operates a nuisance animal removal business, catching the animals without harming them and releasing them back into the wild. The series is primarily filmed near Brown's Lebanon, Kentucky, home.
Brown began catching snapping turtles from ponds near his home at the age of 7. He came to the attention of Animal Planet producers in part after an episode of Kentucky Educational Television's Kentucky Afield series that featured his bare-handed turtle-catching techniques was posted on YouTube and went viral. After personally visiting Brown and doing some initial filming, network executives decided to produce a 12-episode season of the series with the working title The Turtleman of Wild Kentucky. The title was soon changed to Call of the Wildman, a reference to Brown's distinctive yell that punctuates his actions throughout the series. The series was Animal Planet's most watched program in the fourth quarter of 2011 and was renewed for a second, 16-episode series that began airing in June 2012. On October 2012, Animal Planet has re-released the series with bonus features and trivia information known as Call of the Wildman: More Live Action.
Call of the Wildman has been compared to other reality series featuring individuals from the Southern United States such as Billy the Exterminator, Swamp People, and Rocket City Rednecks. Because it depicts Brown's spartan existence in the backwoods of Kentucky, some poverty advocacy groups have expressed concerns that it exploits stereotypical views of Southerners as being poorly educated, poorly groomed, and impoverished. Network executive insist, however, that they have received no negative feedback about the program.
