Insert Explicative Here

What did I find in the road in front of my house yesterday evening but this:


Since it was just a few yards from where I found the turtle I blogged about yesterday, I'm assuming it's the same turtle.  The white things below the carcase are her eggs.

I wish people would slow the $#@! and pay attention around here. There's no reason why anyone should have been going too fast to see her on this street.

  1. Sadly, many of the redneck zipperheads around here would swerve to hit an animal like that on purpose.

  2. What ML said. I used to know truck drivers who'd go out of their way to hit turtles. No reason except orneriness.

    1. Orneriness isn't the word I use for that.

    1. Yes, and it's really upsetting that she was carrying eggs - I could have had more turtles to help keep the slugs down.

  5. Wait! Wait!
    Isn't it always the left-wing tree huggers who complain about such behavior? You guys have it all backward!

  6. Well, crap. I hate seeing that. I know turtles can pile on the speed if necessary (seriously, some of those bass-turds can burn some serious rubber!), but for the most part, its not like they dart out in front of cars on a regular basis.

    1. And she was a humped brown and yellow object on a grey road.

  7. When ever possible I stop and move them across the road
