Turtleboy saw this story on the Facebook machine and it just melted my turtle heart:
A lot of the news we blog about on Turtleboy Sports ain’t good news, which is why this is so refreshing. This is yet another example of the fantastic work that police officers do on a daily basis. This poor girl apparently chased a cat out of the house where she lives with her sister and brother in law and they couldn’t find her anywhere. According to our sources a state police officer found her crying approximately 300 yards from the house
This is what worries me about moving to a town. Turtleboy is a city boy. If you get lost around here you’re guaranteed to end up at a Dunkin Donuts in no more than 20 minutes if you keep walking. But the Brookfields have bears and coyotes and Bigfoot. Plus, this would TOTALLY happen to Turtleboy Jr. If that kid sees a cat he will follow it to the ends of the earth, because as you know, he unintentionally tries to kill himself 8 or 9 times a day.
The North Brookfield police acted quickly and collaborated with the State Police that are located in nearby Brookfield. It couldn’t have happened at a worse time – 4 PM – because daylight savings sucks and it gets dark at 5 now. It was a game of beat the clock. The poor girl had a t-shirt on and was not fit to take care of herself in a dark and wooded area through the night. And if you’ve ever been to North Brookfield, you know EXACTLY how North Brookfield is the official middle of nowhere in Worcester County.
The family apparently just moved to North Brookfield from Worcester which made it more difficult because they did not know the area. As crazy as this was, things are about to get a lot crazier for them soon. North Brookfield was ranked dead last in our list of the worst plowed towns in Worcester County.
Ask anyone from North Brookfield and they wouldn’t have it any other way. North Brookfieldians are the only people in New England who WANT to have the shittiest plowed roads. It keeps the riffraff from Spencer out. So as harrowing as this experience was for this family, shit’s about to get a lot more real in a couple months. Hope you got 4 wheel drive.
Great job by the State and North Brookfield police. This story could’ve had a much different ending.
