Snapping turtle in the garden

On the weekend, our neighbour came over and said there was a huge snapping turtle in her garden along her fence. We went over to take a look:

   

This thing was big! It took some effort, but Jason was able to get him into a recycling box. We threw a piece of plywood over top and transported him over to the pond. We noticed he only had one eye and it looked like it was torn off a bit, and had something growing on it. I hope he made it!
