Apologies to anyone offended by the question.
I will be helping my father-in-law capture snapping turtles in a pond on his farm. They are systematically killing the baby ducks every spring. After capturing them, how does one:
A) Kill them
B) Process them.
He wants the shells, I want the skeletons to reconstruct. What do we need to know in order to remove the meat and organs? They are quite large, up to 80lbs, possibly more.
