I saw a bunch of painters, snappers, and a redear last weekend (I am in central NJ). Fortunately, all alive and kicking. Sad to hear about the die off in your area. I hope it's an isolated incident, but I fear not.
: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!
