Woman finds unusual pet wandering in Ballard

We often hear about missing/found dogs or cats, but one Ballard woman found an unusual pet – a turtle. “I am very eager to help her find her way back to her human family!” Diane writes us.

This turtle, which a herpetologist friend of Diane’s says may be a female Eastern box turtle, was found near the Ballard Boys and Girls Club on 20th Ave NW. “She’s been enjoying fresh kale from my garden, and has been partially submerging herself in a shallow container of water. She seems to prefer to drink while partially submerged,” Diane says, “Seems likely that she is a pet that has wandered from a Ballard home.” If this is your pet or you know whose it is, you can email Diane at genereux@uw.edu.
