Disappointing to say the least, would not recommend
Approximately 10 years ago, I think it would have been in 1997 or 1998 that there was a lot of publicity regarding the documentary filmmaker, Marty Stouffer. Does anybody else remember this? I loved watching all of the "Wild America" shows and especially loved the seemingly nice and genial host, Marty Stouffer. It was reported that Marty Stouffer was illegally filming documentaries and during the making of Wild America, he staged scenes and deaths to wild animals just so he could get something on film. He had to appear in court and pay $300,000 for sneaking into a conservation spot to film elk that he should not have been filming. I remember hearing about Marty Stouffer turning a couple of big cats (tamed) loose on a deer and caused the deer to run off a cliff in his attempt to film a predator taking down prey. This backfired on him because it ruined his reputation and destroyed his career. PBS chose not to work with Marty Stouffer again and did not renew "Wild America". I would never again watch anything that's hosted by Marty Stouffer; I have more respect for the wild kingdom than he does and hope you do too. Thank you.
