TURTLE: Helping a fellow critter

A huge thank you to the guy from Meadow Springs Farm who "escorted" a snapping turtle across the road the evening of Tuesday, May 24. I was driving on Route 926, my way to the Kennett Y, when I saw the snapper in the middle of the road, near the main entrance to New Bolton Center. I stopped my car and got out but, other than staying away from the creature's business end, I was at a loss as to what to do.
Fortunately a Meadow Springs truck also stopped right behind me. The driver got out, calmly picked up the foot-and-a-half-long turtle by the tail, carried him well off the road, and set him down by the white fence.
"Here you go, buddy," he said.
