Turtle With Boy’s Initials Turns Up Alive 47 Years Later



It was 1965 when a boy in Washington County carved his initials in a turtle’s shell and then let it go.

Now, 47 years later, the turtle is still alive and has been found by the boy’s dad.

Holland Cokeley, 85, of South Strabane, Washington County, was walking in the woods of his backyard with his neighbor’s dog, Zack.

Zack began poking around at something and Cokeley realized it was a turtle. He didn’t think much of it, until he gave it a closer look.

----------------

Jeff Cokeley now lives in New York State, but began laughing when his dad sent him pictures of the turtle.

-------------------------

Holland Cokeley kept it for a couple days and then released it, so it can wander for perhaps many more years.
