Woman Rescues Turtle That Was Run Over

By Zack Stieber

A woman in Florida spotted an injured turtle and went over to check on its condition.

The box turtle was actually run over in the Brevard County area, reported Fox 35. The turtle was lying upside.

“I just thought like if I don’t take her then nobody’s going to take her,” Laura Pinto said.

Pinto then saw that the turtle gave birth after the turtle was placed in her vehicle.

Animal experts said the turtle was likely on her way to give birth somewhere when she was hit by a vehicle.

Pinto took the turtle to a Florida wildlife hospital, and she’s expected to make a full recovery.
