Cannon Rd (Google, OSM)

Description

Struck Midland Painted Turtle on Cannon Road near State Route 82. Bleeding plastron, carapace intact. Moved off road, was not there the next morning. I spoke with concerned neighbor and she said they see an average of two per week throughout summer crossing the road between the ponds, especially with heavy rains and overflow from east-most pond. Most turtles are midland painted or snappers, found struck or dead.
