One day a long time ago, I was riding through a thunder storm. There was a massive downpour that created a 3 foot wide river down a slope in the road.
As I rode by I saw a turtle wandering through that into the street. I stopped, picked him up, walked into the woods a bit and let him go.
He was about 12" diameter.
Today I was alerted to the turtle's presence by a silly old lady with a dog. She was worried that people had taken it from the pond that it couldn't live without. I knowing nothing about turtles went along with it. I took her dog and waited for her to go to her home, get mittens, jackets and a cult box for which to transport the turtle to the pond. After I told the story to your Mom and she said that turtles are fine in the woods and that I was being stupid.
