I was on my way home yesterday and noticed an adult turtle crossing the road. There were no cars coming either way but I didn’t feel safe getting out of my truck. I stopped my truck with my front end barely over the centerline to alert any oncoming cars to stop. As I sat there for about 5 seconds, an oncoming Comcast truck saw me and stopped about 150 feet in front of me. It only took the turtle about another 3-5 seconds to get to the shoulder. Feeling he was safe, I straightened my truck and proceeded on. As the Comcast truck passed me I saw him veer off the road kicking up gravel to run over the turtle in my rear view mirror. I turned around, followed him, and got his license plate number and this photo to turn over to the DNR. I know it’s just a turtle but it it a protected species in Michigan and reflects badly on Comcast.
This employee was driving in or around Howell, Michigan. I have a photo of him, which I will happy email to anyone in the company who can identify and fire him.
