Several years ago, a client of Hocking Hills Animal Clinic brought a box turtle that had been hit by a car.

A vet from the clinic used fiberglass to repair his broken shell and then released him in my woods.

Recently, while walking on hillside, the vet spotted an odd pattern in the leaves. There was my old patient with the fiberglass still on... years later!
