If anyone has any advice on this issue I could sure use some!!! In February we had some really warm days and on one of those days a box turtle showed up in my drive way. At first I thought she was just changing Hibernation locations but she didn't move even when it got cold. We tried to get her to "go back to sleep" but she just kept coming back.We finally put her in a really sheltered place and all seemed well until recently. She must have 9 lives because she keeps getting into life threatning sitautions in mine and my neighbors yard (getting almost run over by lawn mowers, makinghomes by cars and yard carts, having altercations with chained dogs etc.) After her last dangerous encounter we took her in for a few days, when we tried to feed her she wouldn't eat anything but chicken(cooked not raw).Do you think she could have been a pet that was released or lost? Should we adopt her so that she doesn't get hurt or relocate her to another location i know of that sports others of her kind? I must add I have lived in this ares for 11 years and have documented several other boxies that show up pretty regularly and we have never seen her before. None of the others aresttracted to people like she is or so readily come into dangerous areas. Thanks for any insight!!!
