Beast of Busco


The Beast of Busco, is the subject of a legend in Indiana about an enormous snapping turtle named Oscar, which citizens claimed to have seen in 1949.  Oscar has since passed away, but not before inspiring a summer festival in his home town called “Turtle Day’s.”  But not everyone is happy about Oscar’s antics in his small town in Indiana.  His hallowed out shell is currently hung in a restaurant in Decatur Indiana as a grisly warning to other giant turtles that may innocently pass through town.
