Ryan Cook Founder & Owner of Gulf Coast Wildlife Removal was born and raised in New Orleans, La. He grew up in the woods identifying and trapping species in the Greater New Orleans and North Shore areas. In his early teenage years, Ryan started working with honeybees under a local apiarist’s wing. Ryan was able to take what he learned and apply it to his own beekeeping business. Ryan has over three decades of experience handling and trapping animals. Since Ryan has an immense love and respect for animals, he always utilizes the most humane approach during his removals.
