Rumors were flying last week during the Adair County Fair and Horse Show about the Turtle Man. The Animal Planet, out of New York and the Turtle Man were at the Adair County Fairgrounds on Wednesday and Thursday, of last week taping footage for the show "Call of the Wild".

Turtle Man, Ernie Brown, Jr., from Marion County, KY, reportedly recovered four different types of animals while here. Many fair goers had a chance to see him and some even became extras for the show.
