Yes, this rather large snapping turtle was making it's way, very slowly I might add, across the road and had traffic stopped. A man in the oncoming traffic got out of his car, asked my husband (who had gotten out to take this picture with his phone) if it was a snapper. Then he proceeded to pick it up by the tail (using a beach towel) and try to put it over the barrier. It wiggled out of his grasp and very angrily started to move away. He picked it up again and placed it safely out of the way of traffic.
Life in a small town - it's just so exciting on a Friday night! By the way, Swal's has the best ice cream I have ever tasted.
