FYI - yes, wounded turtles can often be saved.  Take them to a vet who
cares for wildlife.  The Countryside Vet Clinic in Howell techs use an
epoxy and some sort of wrap to support the shell while the wound heals.


Good luck-
Rita.

Alex,

That sure is a sad sight, a struggling green turtle with its shell
cracked 
open, clawing to get into the cattails. . .as a child we once took care
of a 
wounded turtle, but it succumbed. How about you call the Veterinary
School at 
MSU for some help with this one.

Sometimes I think that we're all a little like those turtles.
