COLUMN: Keep an eye out for turtles

-A A +A

If only the driver had seen the turtle sooner. I was driving to Rockport last week when I saw a car crush and kill a box turtle. I saw the passenger reach over and thump the driver in the head, not violently, but certainly in protest to what had happened.

I know the feeling of killing a turtle and it reminded me of a 2006 column, written about this time of the year. While this spring has certainly been late and less than determined, it has box turtles on the move and in harm’s way. So, please be mindful of their presence when driving.
