A Summerville (Chattooga County) man is taking on the role of distressed prison warden after vandals allegedly cut down some fences enclosing his turtle farm.
According to the Associated Press, some 1,600 of David Driver's 2,200 turtles have managed to slowly escape the farm and "bolt" to other watering holes such as creeks and ponds.
Sheriff's deputies are searching for the escapees. If you will be driving through the Summerville area, please remember that hitchhiking turtles may be escaped turtle convicts.
