People Notice Something Stuck In Train Tracks - Act Immediately

They knew it was incredibly dangerous, but they had to do it anyway. The two brothers had spotted the snapping turtle while out on a stroll near the local railroad tracks, according to Little Things.

The turtle was sitting in between two tracks and appeared to be unable to move. Since they were animal lovers, they knew they had to do something to free the turtle. Though animal rescuers would strongly advise against this out of fear of being attacked, the two brothers tried to wiggle him out to no avail.

Snapping turtles can grow between 8 to 12 inches and can weigh up to 35 pounds. They have large heads and long necks with a sharp hooked upper jaw that is very powerful and can cause serious injury. They reach maturity at 8 to 10 years and can live to the age of 40.

Though the snapping turtle didn’t snap at them, he resisted their attempts to free him. So, the two brothers had to call animal control. The group of rescuers were collectively able to free the turtle before the next train came through, sparring the turtle’s life.
