Talking turtle

Posted By on Fri, Mar 27, 2009 at 6:12 AM

Texas, Alabama and Mississippi are among the states that have restricted turtle harvesting. Declining populations and public health risks from eating meat contaminated by poisons in water are the reasons.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Comission, despite a call for action from scientific and conservation groups, isn't ready to join the movement. Interesting story from Joe Mosby at Stephens Media.
