It really would be better if you let it go now, if you are near enough to a wild area where it would not encounter other people. It will settle down for the winter all by itself. That way you would also not have to worry about how to take care of it, what to feed it, or your (unfounded) fears of damaging bites (at this age they pinch, as they get older they DO hurt, but they can NEVER just snap anyone's finger off). I have raised and cared for snappers all of my life, from just-hatched newborns to injured adults found in the road (see photo) to fully-grown 45-lb. giants. The smallest ones are, by far, the most difficult.
