Box Turtle Drug Bust

Earlier this morning I was reading the Washington Post and having a cup of coffee on my patio while the outside was still cool and refreshing when I came across a funny article. The story is about box turtle #72 who lives in Rock Creek Park. (Yes, the same beautiful park in northwest Washington that played center stage in the famous Chandra Levy disappearance and murder.) This time a little box turtle equipped with a transmitter led a researcher to a newly planted field of marijuana. The marijuana farmer was a college student from upscale Chevy Chase, MD who was making a little college expense money. Click here to learn more of the story. Box Turtle #72 according to the writer of this article has a brain the size of a raisin. Take a look. She is a cutie pie!
