Rough Edges

I guess I have rescued maybe a dozen Snapping turtles from roadways over the years and they all respond the same way - snapping. (What should I expect?)  Sometimes I have found them when they have already been run over, but this one today out near Rt. 59 was still unscathed.  I eventually nudged the little ingrate to the opposite side of the road. Parting company, he seemed indignant, and I still had all my toes and fingers.  No good deed goes unpunished, but I reckon I'll do it again someday if need be.
