Hey all. I'm in El Paso, TX and a instructor at my school found a turtle. Looks like an ornate box turtle to me, but unsure.

I don't know how far from campus they found him. I know they shouldn't have moved him but obviously there's nothing I can do about it now.

What should we do? (I'm in a veterinary technician class and the turtle is not injured at all, just shy.)

Try to find out where they picked him up and take him back as close to that location as possible and release him.

The person that brought him in is taking him home. I'm not in that instructor's class, so I didn't get a chance to speak to them, but they probably wouldn't have heeded the advice here anyway.
