Hello,
My husband rescued a turtle(I beleive it is a Painted Turtle). It was hit by a car and it\'s back shell, leg and tail are injured. The turtle is very alert and seems to move well other than the tail and back leg being injured. Will the shell heal on it\'s own? Will it survive if we release it?
Thank you,
Julie Evans

no, being hit by a car is serious damage.
I suggest sending it to a vet.
