It's a Snapper!

Look what Sean discovered Friday morning!

The geese were making a huge ruckus when Sean went outside to get the does ready for milking, so he paused to see what the fuss was all about and discovered a snapping turtle trying frantically to escape the geese pen. How did it get there? Either Sean inadvertently fenced it inside the new goose area or the poor thing swam under the fencing and then couldn't figure out how to get back out!

However it got in, it was not pleased with Sean's helping to get it back out. That did not stop Sean... though it certainly made him rethink carrying the large, aggressive, angry snapping reptile bent on removing several of Sean's fingers to the stream with his bare hands.

Rescue completed, we were ready to get back to our day.

Thanks for visiting.

  2. That is a BIG turtle type creature!!!! They scare me too, but I will pull off the road and help them to safety as does my love man.

  3. They can be very destructive your young ducks and geese, good thing you got it out of there! Thanks for sharing this on The HomeAcre Hop! Hope to see you again tomorrow at:
