  •  I Saved A 20 lb Snapping Turtle (9+ / 0-)

    A small road was being improved where it crossed a stream and this old boy was probably displaced.  He was sitting in the middle of the road.  Luckily i had a shovel in the trunk of my car and I used it as a spatula to pick him up.  He hissed loudly.  I took him to the stream and dropped him in.

    But run over turtles? Wow that's pretty sick.

    •  Snappers? (0+ / 0-)

      I will stop to move a box turtle off the road. But snappers?  They can depopulate an ENTIRE POND in a few months.  Eat every single thing in it.   If we see a turtle in our pond we kill it ASAP.  (We also know an old codger who likes snapper meat, so it doesn't go to waste either).
