A number of fisherman taking part in the Rabbit Run fishing derby held recently were confused after noticing their casted lines were all moving. When one of the fisherman pulled in his line, he was surprised to see a snapping turtle had entangled itself in all the lines. Doug Daniels, Pennsylvania Conservation Officer, noted the turtle as being approximately 30 pounds and about 30 to 50 years old.
