Animal rescuers in Baltimore were left baffled after saving a snapping turtle from a gutter.
Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter compared the incident to some of life’s greatest “mysteries” such as the existence of aliens.
In a statement on Facebook, they wrote: "Some mysteries in life may never be solved. Like, are we alone in the universe? Which came first: the chicken or the egg? And, most importantly, how did this snapping turtle friend end up roaming around Baltimore City?!"
Thankfully, the little fella is now “safe from the elements and will get the care he needs.”
The group also said that he will be returned to wild after getting the required treatment.
