Animal Planet’s ‘Call Of The Wildman’ May Be Animal Abusing Fakes. [Video]

It looks like “Call of the Wildman” might be the next reality TV show to get kicked in the nuts for being fake and possibly worse. Mother Jones has just posted “Drugs, Death, Neglect: Behind the Scenes at Animal Planet” about how the Animal Planet program pre-prepare and stage the animal wrangling scenes with animals that have already been captured.

From MJ:

“James West’s reporting reveals ‘numerous cases of alleged animal mistreatment and possible infringement of state and federal law,’ and ‘evidence of a production culture that tolerated legally and ethically dubious activities, including using an animal that had been drugged with sedatives, in contravention of federal rules; directing trappers to procure wild animals to be ‘caught’ again as part of a script, and wrongly filling out legal documents detailing the crew’s wildlife activities for Kentucky officials.'”

Well shit sandwich – sounds like Call of the Wildman is abusing the animals that they want you to believe are being rescued. So now, not only are you dumbing down by just watching the program but those cute critters [that get cuter as you get dumber] are actually not being rescued; they’re just taking a beating and getting drugged up for the show.
