DON'T TELL PETA:
Holland Cokeley Finds Turtle (IB Times, May 7, 2012)
In 1965 a then 13-year-old Jeff Cokeley carved his initials into an eastern box turtle in his backyard and let the creature go. Forty seven years later, his now 85-year-old father, Holland Cokeley, has found the exact same turtle with his son's initials on it on the family's property in South Strabane, Pennsylvania."I picked it up, and I thought 'Oh geez, this is Jeff's turtle!'" said Cokeley to KDKA Pittsburgh. "It's been here for 47 years, and it still has the same the same markings on it!"
