Snapping Turtle

My dad saw a snapping turtle strolling along Clemson Blvd in Anderson yesterday.  All the cars were stopped but no one knew what to do.  My dad stopped the car and bravely scooped that beast up and threw him in his van!  The crowd cheered and he escorted him to turtle safety in the Hartwell Lake.  Ofcourse, now I am going to feel even more nervous about swimming in the lake after seeing the size of this guy.  Yikes! The Big TurtleOn his way to freedom

    Of course it would be Russell handling the snapping turtle…he’s had experience. I remember our grandmother PAYING him to take one from our porch to the local pond. PS-He was the one who brought it home from the pond in the first place!

    I believe Granny Lewis (mother of Nanny Lewis) had a recipe for turtle soup. If Russell can catch it and clean it we could find a way to cook it. 🙂
