From Wes: May 15th: Be careful. Don't hit turtles on the road. Trash Pandas. I love them but I also hate them. They are so needy. May 16th: Newest arrival. Angry fledgling. Just moved this monster Snapper out of the road. Be careful. Turtles are on move laying eggs.
Over the last couple of days, we've had a busy time at NY Wildlife Rescue. Here are a few of the newcomers. Plus, some facts about weasels.
This Painted Turtle was found, as many are, injured in the road, and brought for treatment to NYWRC. It's very common in our area to find turtles trying to get from one side of the road to the other, as they follow their territorial water and feeding sources. If you see one, please try hard to avoid it; they're peaceful souls and deserve a break (and a brake).
