Oklahoma's Skunk Whisperer: I'll Roll In Mt. Lion Scat To Raise Funds For Wildlife

Skunk Whisperer Ned Bruha is passionate about wild life. That's why the humane wildlife control expert and Oklahoma resident has an unusual request for his birthday, August 3.

Bruha is asking for donations for the Wild Heart Ranch animal rehab sanctuary to be made in his name. If $10,000 is raised by August 25, he volunteers to roll in a "massive pile of fermented mountain lion feces" after letting Wild Heart Ranch staff pelt him with five dozen rotten eggs.

The entire incident will be live streamed, he said.

"Wildlife rehabbers are the most selfless people on the face of this earth," Bruha said Friday morning.

"If an attention-getting stunt such as a live-feed viewing of horrible and nasty things being done to me produces funds to save the lives on animals, I am all in."

Bruha is the star of the Animal Planet show The Skunk Whisperer, which followed him on his job as he rids homeowners and others of animal pests in a humane manner. He has business locations in Tulsa and Oklahoma City.

Bruha said Wild Heart Ranch founder Annette King Tucker is a personal friend and hero.

"I would obviously do anything to try and help her animals when her nonprofit wildlife rescue needs funding like it does right now," he said.

Donors are asked to put "Ned's birthday" in a memo on their donation. You can donate on Paypal at http://www.wildheartranch.org/default.asp?p=help
