Yes, I've discovered that.  It's been a long time since so many strangers
have called me an a-hole.

I've contacted the East Texas Herpetological Society and am waiting for
their reply.  Also received several helpful email replies regarding how to
catch or kill the turtle.  I hope he catches it and moves it to a swampy
area on the San Jacinto river a few miles away, but since I'm trying to
help from 1100 miles away I don't really know what will happen.

Best regards,
