Rich Nelson was visiting his wife, Kim, at their Skyuka Fine Art gallery in downtown Tryon during a rainstorm on Wednesday, July 11 and said they noticed a car stopping and a man carrying something across the street. They went outside and found the man was carrying a snapping turtle that he said was just sitting in the road. Rich took the turtle to the pond by McFarland’s Funeral Chapel. (photo by Rich Nelson)
