AUSTIN, Texas – The University of Texas may be famous for its Longhorns, but a roundup on campus Monday morning had nothing to do with cattle.

Dozens of students and volunteers pitched in to catch turtles that live in a pond behind the university’s famous tower.

The turtles will spend a few weeks at another facility so their pond can be drained then cleaned.

The last time it was cleaned was in 2002.
