Were these babies ending up as soup or in an aquarium? Doing It Local’s Steve Krauchick reports on the arrest of three men for selling undersized turtles. At times like these it’s always good to call Zoo Director Gregg Dancho.
Three men were taken into custody for selling undersized turtles in the parking lot of 100 Boston Avenue. Police saw the men exchanging cash and small packages and thought at first it was a drug deal. They observed the men from across the street before approaching them. I was told the turtles are too small to be sold. Animal Control was called to take possession of them. It will be a busy day for them as they are not equipped for turtles let alone the quantity of them.
