well anyone who has cleaned a turtle knows they claw and scratch till you get em pretty much dismembered. well i was reading the new f-f-g and it discussed a method that sounds simple enough to make em hold still while you cut em up. you cut off four inches of the end of the tail, then run a wire coat hanger up the spine. when you pull out the wire it's supposed to kill all their nerves and makes them go limp. i don't eat turtles anymore, but figured this might help some of yall that could use another turtle cleaning trick.
