Re: “A Turtle Meets Fast Fate

I understand your sadness. Today a car ran over a Blandings turtle in the parking lot of my nature center, where I work. They came in to tell me. It was still alive but beyond help. I carefully carried it over to a shaded space near the pond where I've seen it before. It put its head out and looked around. I told it how sorry I was that this had happened to it. Then I left it. I didn't have a way to "put it down" as local farm people say. I know it will probably become food for another animal. But I grieve its loss. I hope it was on its way back from laying eggs. Hours later, I am still mourning the death of this beautiful creature, "a turtle, just being a turtle", as you said.
