Earning respect in the industry after completing his military service, Mr. Helm initially became a rescuer for an animal orphanage in Colorado, which housed displaced juvenile animals. Years later, in 2017, he met “Ray the Trapper,” a well-known animal trapper in his own right. Ray the trapper had requested assistance with a 9-foot alligator causing concerns at a well-known hotel in Naples, Florida.
