FILE - In this Wednesday, July 9, 2007, file photo, a zookeeper carries a 55-pound alligator snapping turtle for transport from the zoo in Birmingham, Ala. to the Warrior River. The turtle was released back to the wild after being treated and having a fishing hook removed from its throat. An environmental group says it will sue unless the federal government sets a deadline for deciding whether to protect alligator snapping turtles under the Endangered Species Act.
