This is a photo of a Snapping Turtle that snagged a fisherman's bait. It was still towing 8 or 10 feet of monofilament line that was tangled with weeds and surely would have led to the demise of this turtle from exhaustion and decreased mobility.

On Saturday, volunteers will be collecting old fishing line, hooks and other items that could potentially harm our wildlife.
