Turtle found in garage
I went out gardening and come back and heard a scratching noise. Much to my surprise, it was a turtle (probably a red slider).
There is a football field size man-made wetland in the back of the house, I figure it came from there and released it. It crawled into the muck and disappeared.
Now I am wondering if I had done the right thing. What if I release the turtle into the wrong area? This is the first time I even seen a turtle in the area. I usually get a lot of toads in my yard, but not turtles.
