#Michigan Fire Comcast employee that purposely ran over turtle! The following story has been told by Tim Holliday, a Michigan resident, on his Facebook profile.
The man was on his way home when he noticed an adult turtle crossing the road. No cars were coming from either way, but our witness did not feel comfortable getting out of his truck. Instead, he stopped his car with its front end barely over the centerline, so that other cars that came could be alerted. Moments after, a Comcast pick-up truck stopped about 150 feet of him. Meanwhile, the turtle had almost crossed the road. Sensing the turtle was okay, the man straightened his truck and drove off. But to his utmost surprise, the man saw in his rear mirror how the Comcast truck veered off the road, kicking up gravel to run over the turtle. Luckily, the man managed to write down the license plate number of the car and a photo of the man.
These beautiful creatures are protected species in Michigan and have every right to live! We therefore ask the Department of Natural Resources to look into the matter and prosecute this man for what he did! In addition, Comcast should immediately fire this man, it reflects badly on the company. Please Sign the Petition if you think what he did is utterly wrong! Thank you!
