Dr. Chris Tabaka, a veterinarian with Binder Park Zoo in Battle Creek, Mich., holds a 27-pound Snapping Turtle Wednesday, Oct. 6, 2010, at an emergency wildlife response center set up by Enbridge Inc. in Marshall, Mich. Close to 90 percent of the 2,300 animals captured and cared for overall since the late July oil spill polluting the Kalamazoo River have been turtles and about 99 percent of the turtles rescued have survived, a better rate than for birds and other wildlife contaminated by the pollution. Most of the turtles already have been cleaned, rehabilitated and returned to the wild in time for this winter's hibernation. less
