Description

Large three-toed box turtle sitting in the middle of FM 2611 about 0.5 miles from intersection with FM 457. This is a little north of Sargent, TX. Turtle was trying to cross the road and head north into another pasture, but traffic had him stalled out in the roadway. I moved the turtle over to the ditch. Didn't take a photo because traffic was coming (no shoulder on this road).
