will turtle survive
by: sue

i had 2 snapping turtles awhile back that i found in a factory i worked at,they were the size of a quarter.i kept them until they were the size of a salad plate.i released them in a creek not far from where i live.after i released them i wondered if i did right thing.they were babies when i found them and i fed them,would they be able to take care of themselves.your turtles would be the same way,they would only know you.i would get ahold of a rescue center.

Releasing turtles
by: Shelly

You are probably not allowed to release turtles into the wild in your area. Check with a local rescue center or with your local wildlife authority.

If you have to get rid of your turtles, see if a rescue agency can help you.
