VIDEO: Miracle loggerhead turtle hit several times by boats & split open, recently released after full recovery @Care2

A loggerhead turtle that was hit several times by boats and split open was recently released after a full recovery. The poor turtle was found in very poor condition stranded on a beach, but it was taken to a marine conservation facility and given various medical treatments for months. It had cuts through the shell exposing part of the spinal cord and lung. It is hoped the male turtle will find mates and reproduce because the species needs to experience a population increase. IUCN considers them an endangered species, and in the US their status is threatened throughout their range. Hunting them for food and consuming their eggs used to be more common, but their population has decreased so much, they are now protected.
