    Put him back into his home! Why would you remove him?... especially when you don't plan on keeping it? It may not even be a snapper. There are several water turtles that look like Snapping Turtles, but do not get very big. A Snapping Turtle or two will not hurt the fishing at all. Not cool bro to remove an animal from it's habitat. True, it probably was put there illegally by a pet owner, but hey, it just makes for a more interesting lake. Put him back.

    Bring him to Imperial Fish in Brea. 704 E. Imperial Hwy. I'm sure they'll take him off your hands. I would assume that Turtles can eat Bass Fry so why take that chance... JMO -Rich

    You think snapping turtles can take care of an invasive cormorant population?

    Hahahaha this **** made me laugh


    As for the turtle, start looking up some rescues or call a vet and see where you can drop the turtle off. You don't want to be caught with it since its illegal to have in california and you can't set it free cause that's illegal too

    i highly doubt it was a snapping turtle. probly just a slider. theres dozens in that lake. i was there today also. i talked to a dfg guy at tri- city a few months ago and he told me that if i cought a carp or a turtle to throw it in the trash can. i guess turtles get out control easy.

    So it's legal to waste those species?

    Was he a warden or a dfg biologist?
