Now, turtles aren’t really known for being dangerous, but snapping turtles won't hesitate to take one of your fingers off!
Which would probably explain the caution that a Westmoreland police officer was exercising while attempting to pick up this stray turtle so that it could be returned to the nearby lake.
The cop, who wants to place the turtle into a box so that he can be carried to safety, is so jittery and scared to hold the amphibian, and keeps jumping every time the animal so much as moves a leg.
