Zoo Wars- Former Animal Planet host pleads guilty


Former Animal Planet host pleads guilty in exotic lizard case

Donald Schultz

A former Animal Plant television host pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges connected to selling endangered lizards to an undercover federal  agent.

Donald Schultz appeared in federal court in Los Angeles Tuesday, pleading  guilty to violating the Endangered Species Act by offering to sell, and selling,  two live desert monitor lizards in interstate commerce, according to the U.S.  attorney’s office in Los Angeles.

Schultz, a native South African who appears on television as an expert on  dangerous wildlife, was the host of Animal  Planet’s “Wild Recon,” which aired 10 episodes in 2010. On the show, he retrieved biological  samples of animals from remote locations.

In a plea agreement, Schultz had admitted to selling two live monitor lizards  in 2010 to an undercover agent with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

He met with the agent at his home, agreeing to ship the two live lizards to  Buffalo, N.Y., via plane, which he did, according to the U.S. Attorney’s  Office.

Schultz did not have a permit to sell the lizards, which are listed as  endangered under federal law.


Donald Schultz has been busy indeed, attempting to blame others, including accusing Joe Schreibvogel, GW Exotics of things he is guilty of yet there has been no arrest or any allegations from Schultz’s claims…Just because they claim it-it doesn’t make it so.

These Animal Rights Extremists speak only from the knowledge of things that they themselves are guilty of especially Carole Lewis Baskin~CEO Big Cat Rescue/BCR/Easy Street who has committed more harm to animals and at the top of the list as offender but her protection is Wayne Pacelle~CEO HSUS/associated with GFAS, who just doesn’t have a clue and if he did, it wouldn’t matter because he simply could careless about animals and only about his big pay check!!! Until good animal owners, whether it be domestic or endangered species, step up to the plate, there will be no true justice for animals and/or their owners!!!

This time at least there was a win for the animals!!!
