To the Editor:
I read your Dec. 5 story about Whitney Southall’s love of turtles.
I was in Louisa Town Park a few years back. I came across a large tortoise one day—it was about two feet long. It stayed near a creek at the west end of the park.
I had called a vet clinic and I was told it would be okay to leave it alone. But later I found it had died, probably from cold weather.
I just hope this never happens again.
Thanks for your article.
