New Momamae Member. Trapping turtles is absolutely dangerous for ducks and other water birds. They can also decimate a population of ponds quite quickly. They are VERY strong, fast and extremely aggressive.
A turtle cannot live in concentrated duck water. Zoos that do this have multimillion-dollar filter systems. Ducks eat a small turtle. A large turtle eats ducks.
Snapping turtles have already eaten birds. They eat animals the size of ducks and musk ox.
Snapping turtles eat the fry of some fish that humans love to catch, but snapping turtles don’t eat enough to have a major impact on fish populations. Snapping turtles have been known to kill both young and adult ducks and geese, but again the effects are minor.

They are dangerous for everything that lives in the pond: ducklings, small fish, frogs and kidneys. The problem for the RSPCA is catching them because we simply don’t have the resources to splash around in a pond that catches turtles all day.
Snapping turtles have an unfair reputation for being angry. On Earth they can be aggressive, but that is only because they are out of the element and cannot recover quickly. Snapping turtles can swim gracefully in the water. They prefer to walk away from people in silence than to ■■■■■■.

Various methods are used to kill turtles, including hitting the head with a stone, ■■■■■■■ a sharp stick in the nostril and brain, and cutting the throat. Sea turtles are difficult to kill and kill because they can withstand low oxygen levels (needed for diving).
Even the collection of a few adult turtles can have a negative impact on a population and make any hunting unsustainable. Turtle hunting is illegal in most provinces, where they are found only in Saskatchewan and Ontario.
