CORAL SPRINGS, FL – As Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department staff were heading to a training session on Friday afternoon, they noticed something unusual by the side of a road.
It was a huge turtle.
The turtle was spotted near the department’s Fire Station 42 at 6500 Parkside Drive in Parkland shortly before 1:30 pm, said Mike Moser, deputy chief and spokesman for the department.
How the turtle got there or who it belongs to (if anyone at all) isn’t known, he said.
An officer with the Coral Springs Humane Unit, which is part of the city’s police department, picked up the turtle and took it to the unit’s facility.
If you recognize the turtle or know its owner, contact the Humane Unit at 954-346-4422.
