    Well as many people know, snapping turtles will eat just about anything Includeing our chickens, ducks, and other little pets!

    And This I found posted on Craigslist and figured it was funny enough to post in the predators and pests section. I only edited it to remove the phone number.


    I caught this huge snapping turtle in a local pond a couple weeks ago. I kept it because I thought it was cool and would make a good pet or guard turtle for my chickens but, as it turns out, he likes to eat chickens. Now, I've not actually seen him eat a chicken with my own eyes but he is either eating them or they are pulling their own legs off and flying away because I've found 6 legs in 2 days, which by my ciphering equals either 3 two-legged chickens or 2 three-legged chickens, and I'm missing 3 of my two-legged hens. He apparently prefers Rhode Island Reds over Buff Orpingtons, but who doesn't? I wish cock fighting was legal because he'd make a pretty good cock fighter.

    So, what I'm saying is that if someone wants to help me start up a snapping turtle fighting ring then I'll keep him and we'll fight them but you'll have to provide your own turtle. Otherwise, I need to get rid of him before he kills the rest of my brood, or my dog or me. If you want him be prepared to have one heck of a fight on your hands because he weighs at least 85 pounds and has a 21.5" neck on him.

    I'll take $23.88 for just the turtle, or $30.00 even for the turtle and his shell. If you don't want the shell, you'll have to get him out of it yourself without hurting him or him hurting you (because I don't need that drama in my life). I'd say it would be well worth the $6.22 difference to just buy the whole package.

    Don't email me because you're wasting your time because I steal my neighbor's wireless and I have a feeling he's catching on because the other day when I was mowing he kept yelling "Stop draining my bandwidth you blood-sucking, red-necked leech", which I have no idea what that means but it sounds like it has something to do with computers. Yeah, I agree with you, he is a jerk. Anyway give me a call at ----------------------- if you want to buy this beast or start up a snapping turtle fighting ring with me.​
