Over the weekend I shared a video of me cleaning out our window wells. They are about 3 feet deep and there were a bunch of leaves in there. Some times we get animals in them that can't get out. The other day it was a frog. We have had baby rabbits, a muskrat, a snake. Yesterday was the worst. A giant snapping turtle!
He (or she) was fine when it was in the yard but them it must have fallen in. We tried putting a board in their for it to crawl up. It was way too steep for it to crawl out. Then I tried to scoop it out with a plastic snow shovel. It was way too heavy and really angry. We tried putting a tarp in there hoping it would crawl onto it and we'd lift it out quick and then run like crazy. It crawled under it instead.
I went to facebook for suggestions and got the solution. I didn't facebook live it because I didn't want to take the chance of losing a toe or something, Can hardly wait to see what falls in next.
