Police Rescue Giant Sea Turtle From Car’s Trunk

Quote:“[Police] found an enormous leatherback sea turtle in the trunk,” a press release from the Public Security Ministry stated. “It was alive and flapping its fins as if asking for help.”

Police believe the men planned to sell the kidnapped endangered turtle for meat. Weighing up to 2,000 pounds, leatherback turtles are the largest species of sea turtles. The creatures nest on Costa Rica’s Caribbean beaches from February to July and are often poached for their meat and eggs.

Happily, the Costa Rican Coast Guard released the turtle back into the ocean following the incident, and Rivera ended his shift early in the morning, a job well-done.

I recall watching some documentary of the Chinese people catching any type (and all) sea creatures and selling them by the sea. Two young world travellers noticed a large sea turtle and bought it then released it back into the coastal waters...hoping it would escape and not be caught again.
