GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Traffic came to a halt Thursday morning along Knapp Street for a snapping turtle.

Michael Pfleghaar spotted the snapper trying to cross Knapp while out for a walk with his dog. He called his friend Tommy Allen to come and help.

After the turtle at first didn’t appreciate their efforts, they used a stick to help prod the turtle along and kept traffic from ending the turtle’s journey.
