Although listed as a species of special concern both federally and provincially, snapping turtles are still legally hunted with an allowable take of up to two snapping turtles per person, per day. Ontario Nature is deeply concerned that a species at risk is legally hunted in this province. Visit their website for more information on their campaign to end the snapping turtle hunt in Ontario.
