    i do a property that slopes down to the lake. Normally all the sun bathing turtles will slip away, but there musta been a retarted one because he didnt decide to run till i was below him and he ran right under the deck.

    I got one about a month ago. It sheared the top half of the shell right off like a surgeon did it. I repeated ran over what was left to make sure he didn't suffer.

    I just chopped a turtle on Friday. I thought it was a rock, and cringed. It made a big "thud". Poor thing. About the size of your hand.
