Large Michigan snapping turtle rescued, released

ARGENTINE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WNEM) -- We’re guessing that’s the face of a happy turtle.

Argentine Township Police posted a picture of the 20-pound snapping turtle that had gotten trapped between a pipe and the dam near Silver Lake Road.

John Harwood, with the dam, and Argentine Township Sgt. Doug Fulton used a crowbar to help rescue the snapper and release it back into the wild.
