Untold Stories of the ER: Snapping Turtle Latches on and Won't Let Go
By: Jodi Westrick
Our friends over at Discovery Fit & Health shared this crazy video with us from Untold Stories of the ER.
Patient Bo was noodling for catfish (just like our friends on Hillbilly Handfishin'!) when a 25-pound alligator snapping turtle latched onto his neck. Shouldn't be a problem to remove it, right?
Wrong. If the doctor harms or, worse, kills the turtle during removal, the catfishers risk serving jailtime according to the game warden who accompanied the group to the emergency room. Not to mention that pesky little detail of how strong the turtle is and the fact that it can hold its breath for an extended period of time.
