BRWC seeks help to find turtle’s home

The Blue Ridge Wildlife Center is seeking help from residents of Clarke County to find the home of a Woodland Box Turtle.

Someone handed the turtle to a woman on the street in front of Lavish Studios in Berryville Monday morning.

The healthy, adult turtle will have to be placed into use for educational purposes or euthanized if the owner or original location is not found.

Relocation is illegal, unsafe, and inhumane as these turtles will die trying to find their original home and could spread diseases to new areas.

If you have any information on the individual who gave the turtle away or of the found location, please contact the Blue Ridge Wildlife Center at 540-837-9000.
