Homesteader Days Hardy Arkansas.

Did you know a Box turtle only roams 1 mile its whole life? If it is removed from its area/home then for the rest of its life it will roam aimlessly stressed out... trying to find "home" until it dies a very sad death.

Please do not remove turtles. Do not take them home as pets. If one is injured please mark the exact spot found for the wildlife center. If a turtle is in the road you can help by moving it directly across the street in the direction it was heading. Thank you!

I post this every few months because it's not really known. Many people think it is harmless to let their children take home a docile turtle to play with and release it someplace they see appropriate. I was once that kid. Please share the knowledge.

The turtle races at Homesteader days or anyplace else is crewel and unnecessary. Please put a stop to this open and blatant cruelty now.

Other than the cruelty put on these poor turtles Homesteader Days was very nice experience.
