Reader's view: Turtles sometimes need help to cross roads
Please be aware, as spring and summer are upon us, that turtles are endangered animals and sometimes need help to safely cross our roads. We can help by pulling over and gently moving the turtles in the direction they’re heading.
Please do not pick up turtles by their tails; that hurts them. Pick them up by the rear instead.
Don’t take turtles home. Keep wildlife wild.
