Don’t Get Snappy With Me!

This legal size Snapper or Snapping Turtle came close to being dropped in a pot the other day! Yes, my friend and long-time co-worker likes to eat turtle meat. This one was just legal size. I was riding along on a golf cart when I came upon this big guy. I’ve dealt with them for many years doing yard work along cricks and lakes in Michigan. They aren’t something you want to mess with, trust me!

My friend whom I’ve worked with for twenty-plus years picked the turtle up by it’s tail, we took it down to the dam and tossed it back in below the dam. It tried in vain to reach around and bite my friend but his stumpy neck just wasn’t long enough. Have a nice swim in the crick Mr. Snapper!
