If you’ve ever seen a “Turtle Crossing” sign along a highway and wondered what it was about, there were answers at the Hillcrest Animal Hospital  in Trenton on Tuesday evening.
Wendy Bagg, education co-ordinator for the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre , informed people that turtles are at risk and need your help, especially when it comes to crossing the road.
Mr. D and Andrea were the two turtles at the seminar. Mr. D is a snapping turtle that suffers from a spine injury after being hit by a boat propeller, and can no longer swim.
Andrea is a painted turtle who lost her eye after being hit by a car.
In the video below, Bagg shows the audience how to carefully pick up a snapping turtle and bring it to safety.
