Tangled tale of the green sea turtle

Here's a sad story you never like to see.

This giant green sea turtle got caught in a crab trap and washed up on shore.

Actually, it didn't make it up on shore by itself, a few sunbathers spotted it and went out a good 200 feet to get a closer look, and then saw that it was caught to a rope and brought it back in.  The rope which connects to the surface float was wrapped a couple times around one of its front flipper.  There was some hope that it would be okay to swim but then it became apparent it was dead.


It was a good try anyhow.
