Snapping turtle found crawling in our front yard

Snapping turtle found crawling in our front yard

June 2019 - This one has us stumped! We live a good distance of waist-high pasture grass away from any sort of water (a small spring and a couple creeks). And, we commonly find colorful (and very passive) box turtles in the fields and lawn. But this is the first snapping turtle we've spotted so far away from water. He or she was fairly large and plenty aggressive. We have no idea how it could have crawled all this way but it was released into Newfound Creek at the bottom of the pasture.
