Sickening.

Turtle Dragged Out Of Sea, Beaten, So Children Could Ride On It

Quote:
Tourists severely abused a turtle that ventured a little too close to a crowded beach in Lebanon. The beachgoers dragged the poor creature out of the sea and threw it on the shore for photos. Thereafter, a few people even beat the turtle and put their toddlers on its back, injuring the helpless animal.

A routine swim to shore turned into a horrendous nightmare for a sea turtle. Taking advantage of the defenseless reptile, a couple of tourists pulled it out of the sea and slammed it on the beach for a few photos. The torture of the creature unfortunately didn’t end there. Evidently, many senseless parents placed their young ones on top of the creature for a piggyback ride.
Quote:
According to a preliminary medical examination, the medical team concluded that the creature suffered extensively due to the beating it suffered on the beach. They added that it will need multiple X-rays to assess the internal damage to its bone structure and organs. Animals Lebanon have volunteered to provide the veterinary care the turtle needed. The team will try to return the sea creature to the ocean, added Mier.

Why in Gods name would they BEAT the poor thing? Dragging it out of the water was bad enough! Sheesh.

The people that did this should be locked in a cage with gorillas, hippos, elephants, rhinos, crocodiles, and grizzly bears.

You forgot starving Hyenas and all of us. This is why I love animals more than I care for most people.


Hard to believe there wasn't a decent, sane person on the beach to stop the madness.

An idiot 20 yr old woman straddled a sea turtle in FL a year or so ago and posted the pics to social media. She was charged with a felony, iirc.
