Snapping Turtle Stops Traffic
This big beauty was trying to cross the street in front of Eastern College Pond today. Normally the traffic is wizzing by at that location, but the turtle stopped traffic in both directions. People were out of their cars, using umbrellas and large sticks trying to get the turtle to move. She was not moving except for snapping at everybody. Finally things calmed down. People backed off and she raised her head and slowly and elegantly crossed the road and disappeared into the brush. The traffic resumed and she will live to see another day.
