June is a busy month at the KTTC. Although we’ve already had some turtles dropped off to us this spring, we will likely receive many new patients over the next month. June is the height of turtle nesting season and unfortunately this is the time of year turtles are most likely to be hit by cars.
On a much happier note, this is also the time of year that many of our patients of released. Some of our patients end up spending the winter with us if they are not ready to be released by the autumn. CHEX News was on hand last night to film one of our happy endings. Tommy the Snapping Turtle was released back into the wild by the family who brought him in to the KTTC last spring. You can watch the story here: Turtle Release on CHEX.
