Not sure where you're located but where I live, these turtles are very common and the only restriction on them is that you not transfer them into other bodies of water.
Otherwise, the law says you can keep them for eating....
Who'd be the wiser if you put one in your tank, so long as you took good care of it....IMO these turtles are smelly, not very active, and have a bad temper.
