Yesterday we came across three big snapping turtles along nearby Wisconsin roadways. Of course, we don’t want them to get run over, so we want to help. But how DO you help a big, snappy snapping turtle cross the road?
This video from the Toronto Zoo is a pretty good guide. I wish we would have known had some of these ideas over the years! On the other hand, grabbing them at the back of the shell still takes a bit of courage!
And always remember, be safe. Park your car in a safe location and watch for traffic at all times!
