    They are on a mission. Never try to relocate them. If they are crossing the road always put them off on the side they were heading towards.

    I used to have lots of box turtles in my yard. Every time one would cross the road, someone would stop, pick it up and take it away. I have no more turtles.

    But neither do you have a road covered with dried lumps that used to be turtles.

    I've had a box turtle show-up every year on or around my car port for at least five years. Can identify the critter because its missing a portion of a hind leg... So last year I was cutting grass, you can figure out what happened next. Heard a thud, but nothing expelled out the grass shoot. Stopped the tractor and there was my little buddy with a nice shell cut across the top, with blood starting to run. Cleaned the shell, applied some Neosporin and a Band-Aid and sent him on his way.

    Damn if he didn't come back this year, minus the band-aid and a new scar...

    So what I'm hearing you say is that other creatures cant stand to be around you :) Even to the point of running into traffic :)

    On a serious note, who takes them away, as the OP said, it's straight line to the other side of the road for them.

    Sex with a snapping turtle surely is memorable! 😉

    Sadly, since they don’t have opposable thumbs, they cannot smoke a cigarette.

    Upside is that they get to skip that awkward dressing part after. :)

    Does the shell have a zipper or snaps?
