‘Skunk Whisperer’ Frenemy To Critters

TULSA, Okla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One good ol’ country boy has molded himself into one the greatest animal trappers of all time.

Ned Bruha is known throughout Oklahoma as the Skunk Whisperer, rescuing animals from attics, soda machines, baby cribs, and anywhere else they get themselves into.

Bruha credits his father for turning him into a top-notch critter catcher at age seven when he made little Ned handle some chipmunks burrowing in their backyard, which was covered with WWII graves.

He says, “I’ve been after critters ever since.”

Bruha searches for humane solutions to animal control and says talking to the furry guys like children is his secret weapon because, “If you don’t talk to them like a child, you’re gonna get sprayed. It calms them.”

Even then, Bruha has seen the wrath of many animals, and has been bitten by a bat, a squirrel – who left one of its teeth in his finger – and a possum, whose bite was like “the jaws of death.”
