: Thats really sad.
I know its still a bit early for turtle searching, but I went looking at the peninsula(I live in Erie, PA) I saw a dead shoft shell turtle and one, not sure which kind, with iots head and one arm missing. It was sad. I also just talked to a guy who said a friend of his who does research founf over 12 dead map turtles in the area. Besides the two I found dead, I saw no others. This is really sad, and I have a feeling alot of it has to do with pollution. You wouldnt believe how much garbage I saw at one small pond right next to the ranger station!
:Also, about the spotted turtle post right after this one, they are very endangered in this area and the fine is quite heavy!
