Thank you for this Cher. These turtles are a treasure, have carried several across the highway so they wouldn't get run over (you cannot change their mind so take them in the direction they were going). Signed with pleasure. This is unforgivable.

No form of violence against animals should be tolerated, especially this sort of wanton cruelty. Surely the golf course has surveillance to protect its grounds. If someone had vandalized their green, I'm sure they'd be working hard to find the culprit and prosecute. I hope they would devote *at least* the amount of work toward finding the person(s) who beat an innocent animal to death that they would toward protecting their lawn. The damage appears to be golf-club inflicted, according to the article. Doesn't that tip, alone, lead the course management to want to make sure none of their members were involved?
 

Marilyn M. (143)

The snapping turtle had a place in this world - his killer does not - - - chances are that even if he does get caught - he'll get off with a meaningless slap on the wrist. In too many cases - "the law" is nothing more than a meaningless piece of busywork formulated by a group of worthless - yes I do mean worthless - politicians - whose main goal is not necessarily to do what is right - but more importantly to get re-elected - - -
