Description

Dangerous Encounters departs from its traditional format of traversing the globe and focuses on powerful, elusive and deadly animals right here in the United States. As he travels across the country, Brady seeks out the help of locals and scientists to locate and study a series of remarkable animals that are often overlooked. But not to worry, Dr. Brady Barr still brings his unique scientific approach to each encounter.
Always willing to go the distance, Brady faces his ultimate fear this season — returning to rodeo clown school and mounting a bucking bull. Applying some of the same techniques he famously used in the past to disguise himself as a hippo and crocodile, Brady enlists the help of a stuffed animal and remote-controlled car to analyze a lethal predator. And even with more than 20 years of experience tracking and studying reptiles, Brady finds himself unprepared for an epic battle with a rogue alligator and calls on a Nat Geo WILD cameraman for help. Using the few materials they have on hand, the unlikely duo wrangles the phantom beast with a pair of jumper cables and Brady’s underwear … yes, his underwear!

    Home Invasion

    Interactions between humans and bears can prove deadly, so to dissuade them from equating us with food, it's important to keep them away from our trash. Brady heads to Yellowstone Park to visit The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center testing facility, where they're working on building a better trash can. After baiting a trash can, they put it to the test with two 500-pound grizzlies and watch as the animals tear the trash can to shreds in a matter of minutes. From there, Brady's off to central Florida to check in on an animal armed with smarts and dexterity rather than brute strength - the mischievous raccoon.
