Happy World Turtle Day! Use today as a reminder to keep your eyes peeled for turtles crossing the street now that the weather is warmer.
Unfortunately, many turtles are injured or killed from vehicle strikes, as they have a difficult time trying to move out of the way.
If you happen to see a turtle crossing the road, the best thing you can do is check your surroundings, be aware of other drivers, and observe the turtle at a safe distance while allowing it to cross the road on its own. You should never pick up a wild animal.
