Person turns in turtle to sheriff's office

Posted: Updated:

The Fremont County Sheriff's Office had to return a Yellow Mud Turtle into the wild after a person brought it into the department Tuesday.

Deputies say the person brought it to the sheriff's office after finding it crossing a road in Fremont County.

A deputy brought it back to where it was found and released it back into the wild. 

The Sheriff's office posted that it's never a good idea to bring a wild turtle out of the wild and to authorities. Deputies said it's fine to move the turtle to the side of the road if you see one crossing, but to do it safely.

Deputies also said if you don't feel comfortable moving turtles on your own, they'll always help out if called.
