I agree with AMercer, it seems like this was from a zoo and even the fact that it was shoved in the things mouth doesn't mean the person was being cruel. If they were worried it was sick or that its jaw was injured, that would be a safe way to take a look at its reflexes and anatomy without risking their own safety.

This looks like the turtle was in a plastic bin for temporary holding and not something permanent. You would see a zoo do this if you worked behind the scenes. If the normal habitat was being fixed or for a quick repair then the turtle was moved to a bin like this. It is clean and can be easily cleaned. It is large enough to hold him but there is nothing dangerous in there for him to hurt himself. He can be easily and safely moved around. If the turtle lived in that bin then the inside of it would be one of the most filthy things you ever saw. I do not think this bin is where the turtle is normally kept.
