Police Handle Snapping Turtle on Scott Blvd
COLUMBIA - KOMU 8 Viewer Billy Dexheimer watched an interesting scene unfold Tuesday night. A police car had pulled over to try to get a very large snapping turtle out of Scott Blvd. The police officer called for back up and finally took the turtle away.
"The plan seemed to be to get the creature into a rather unsturdy-looking cardboard box," said Dexheimer in an email. "They were successful even with the turtle using all its might to free itself."
Dexheimer sent us these pictures of the scene. Enjoy!
