COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. – A county worker and another woman jumped into action when a dead green sea turtle washed up on the shore of Seagate Beach Friday morning.
Every morning, Gail Turner takes a walk on Seagate Beach. On Friday, she saw a dead green sea turtle wash up on shore.
“It looked like it was cut at the top of the head in the back, it was really sad to see and nobody was around,” Turner said.
Moments later Turner said a county worker showed up and the two dragged the turtle towards the dune area and started digging.
Turner said it wasn’t easy.
