Animal control called from the house and asked where was the animal and I told her. I explained the situation, talked about how dirty the water was. She wasn’t sure if she could just take it at this point or they’d have to contact the owner.
A little while later, she called me again and here’s the situation. The people who moved out are having the people next door take care of it until the people who moved out move into their new home (they’re buying a home). With all of the rain we’ve been getting, that’s put them behind. But the new place has a pond where the turtle will live, instead of in an aquarium. The turtle should be gone by the end of the weekend.
The AC officer told me to feel free to call next week if the turtle is still there. She expressed her concern over the condition of the water to the woman who is feeding the turtle, pretty much telling her that that amount of algae doesn’t happen in a short period of time.
So, we’ll see what happens next week.
I’m happy the turtle might have a new home, but I loathe his living conditions right now
