Kevin’s favorite wildlife job was when he helped his grandma by trapping a badger out in her cow pasture. The badger kept a close eye on him while he walked the pasture to set the trap. Kevin heard the badger growling at him as he set the trap. Later that day he checked the trap and sure enough Kevin caught him! Another job that stood out to Kevin was a rat job in Kansas City. This rat had become so smart that Kevin had to do an “undercover mission” with the owner to actually watch the rat to see where it was traveling during the night. They were able to catch the rat while they were hiding at the customer’s home. 

Kevin currently resides in North Kansas City, MO. When Kevin isn’t working, you’ll find him out on the golf course during all seasons of the year. He’s even been seen at the driving range in the snow! Now that’s dedication!
