Commission Plans To Fix Up Turtle Effigy Site

April 18, 2014, 4:25 PM

PIERRE, SD -

The Pierre/Fort Pierre Historic Preservation Commission plans to fix up the site of a stone turtle figure north of Pierre.

The chain-link fence around the Snake Butte Turtle Effigy is in poor condition and portions are starting to fall over.

Varying factors leading to the decline include vandalism, cows in the surrounding fields and hunters using the site as an impromptu blind to hunt geese. Shotgun shells can be found near the site.

Repair work will include new fencing around the effigy and clearing away overgrown grass. The commission plans to post a sign with a QR code linking to information on its website.

The South Dakota State Historical Society is paying for the materials, and work will be done by volunteers.
