DANVILLE, Kentucky – Reality show star Ernie Brooks Jr. — aka “Turtleman” — is getting shellshocked by accusations from officials in Danville, Ky., who are accusing him of faking a scene for his Animal Planet show by putting snakes into a city pool.

Brooks, a professional animal trapper and star of “Call Of The Wildman,” appeared in a recent episode supposedly risking his life to grab some poisonous cottonmouth snakes from the Danville-Boyle County public pool.

The episode aired June 2 and caught the eye of city officials, who were surprised to discover a poisonous snake had been in the pool without their knowledge. They also had no idea the show had filmed at the pool until the episode aired, WJTV-TV reported.
