Dexter was dumped on a pond where a snapping turtle grabbed hold of his foot. While on-lookers stood on the dock, poor Dexter was dragged around by the turtle for over an hour. At times he was pulled completely underwater and was at risk of being drowned. Finally, the turtle let go and Dexter quickly swam to shore. Dexter was obviously someone’s beloved pet. He is extremely affectionate and loves to have his bill scratched.
