The sweltering heat over the last couple of days here in the good ol’ sunny state of Florida has been almost been unbearable; so much so that at any chance I get I hop into the ocean or pool just to cool down a bit. But I’m not the only one with that idea. A 250-pound sea turtle felt like she might just hop on in to a local Floridan’s pool for a relaxing swim, unknowingly trapping herself. Therefore, when this homeowner stepped outside to hop in their pool to cool off, they had a surprising find. Rescuing this 250-pound sea turtle turned out to be quite the task; however, after rescuing her and deeming her healthy enough to be released, she was taken back to the Atlantic Ocean, where she can go on living her happy and healthy life while cool in the ocean.
Watching humans rescue animals, restores my hope for humanity 🌎
