PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — It wasn’t your typical police call.

Two officers in Portsmouth, N.H., were summoned to a parking lot at the Pease International Tradeport for an uncooperative turtle that wouldn’t move from beneath a row of cars. It was blocking a driver from pulling out of a parking space Thursday.

The Portsmouth Herald reports the snapping turtle eventually moved — only to position itself beneath a motorcycle.

The officers at first attempted to coax the turtle out by attempting to have it bite onto a stick. They also considered picking it up, but didn’t have any safety gloves.

Eventually, the motorcycle owner had to move his bike, allowing the officers to trap the turtle in a box using the stick. It was placed in the nearby woods.
