Maine woman finds
2-headed baby snapping turtle
HUDSON, Maine — A woman in Maine has come across a two-headed baby snapping turtle that was trying to cross the road.
Kathleen Talbot of Hudson tells WLBZ-TV she found the tiny creature this week while she was watching turtle hatchlings to make sure they arrived safely at the other side of the street.
She noticed one of the turtles had been left behind. It was so dirty she thought at first that it had two feet in front.
It wasn’t until she got home and washed off the turtle that she realized it had two heads. The turtle fits easily into the palm of her hand.
She named it Frank and Stein.
Calf with ‘7’ on its head
named for Steelers’ Ben
LORETTO, Pa. — Moooove over, Ben Roethlisberger. There’s a new No. 7 in western Pennsylvania.
The folks at Vale Wood Farms in Loretto have named a calf Baby Ben after the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback because the cow has a marking that looks like a No. 7 on its head.
The farm has posted the calf’s picture on its Facebook page, and WJAC-TV visited the farm about 70 miles east of Pittsburgh to see what all the fuss is about.
Carissa Itle-Westrick, the director of business development for the family-owned food-and-grocery farm, is hoping Roethlisberger won’t mind.
