In this all new season of “Outback Wrangler,” follow the extraordinary everyday life of helicopter pilot and animal relocation expert Matt Wright. Raised in the rugged Australian outback, Matt has developed a unique set of skills to solve problems with animals that, for various reasons, are posing a threat to people. Matt’s mission is to confront these animals head-on and relocate them. Whether wrangling deadly snakes, wrestling wild bulls or dangling hundreds of feet below a moving helicopter to land inside a crocodile nest (while the mother croc is right there), Matt is at the center of the action as he does his part to reset the delicate balance between people and dangerous animals.
