It should be noted that picking a large snapping turtle up by the tail may also injure the turtle. Best to throw a blanket over it and pick it up by the shell.

I personlly prefer the shovel method of guiding them on their way. LOL have run across a few males that well are a smidge fiesty in my time that I worked at a shelter.
