Turtles Rescued From MLB Stadium

February 2014

A water-retention pond was being drained for the building of the new Braves stadium. The Braves sent in a team to remove animals, but a couple of weeks later, unbeknownst to the organization, hundreds more turtles dug out of the mud and became trapped inside the fence. We got eyewitnesses in touch with stadium executives, and the remaining turtles were relocated to a neighboring pond.
