WATCH: This cop SCARED of picking up this snapping turtle is hilarious!

You'd imagine a law enforcement officer who is used to handling dangerous criminals wouldn't think twice while picking up a turtle, even if it happens to be a snapping turtle that could bite your hand off. As this video proves, a stray turtle can even unnerve a police officer, thus, making for hilarious viewing.

The animal kingdom is full of wonderful and mysterious beings. And sometimes when they are taken out of their natural habitat, some of the seemingly docile creatures can be quite dangerous. Take a snapping turtle, for instance. Now, turtles aren’t really known for being extremely dangerous, but this kind would snap your hand off if you upset and got your fingers close to its beak.

Which would probably explain the caution that a Westmoreland police officer was exercising while attempting to pick up this stray turtle so that it could be returned to the nearby lake. Now, one expects even such a task would be a cakewalk for a law enforcement officer, whose job entails tackling dangerous people and managing life-threatening situations.

Not so much for this cop here, who seemed so scared of handling a stray turtle on the street that it made for a whole video that’s now gone viral with almost 10 million views in less than a day.

The cop, who wants to place the turtle into a box so that he can be carried to safety, is so jittery and scared to hold the amphibian, and keeps jumping every time the animal so much as moves a leg. Trust us, this video will make you laugh SO hard.

Question is, does he finally manage to get the guy in the box? Watch the video to find out.
