Endangered Turtle Dragged Out of the Sea for Selfie Just Before It Was Beaten With a Stick

A crowd than gathered around the defenseless animal to take selfies, and one person placed a child right on top of it. Afterward the turtle was observed being beaten with a stick.

Fortunately, there were some decent people around - when two passersby noticed what was happening to the turtle, they took it to a safe place and contacted the environmental organization GreenArea International to arrange a rescue.

Jason Mier, executive director of Animals Lebanon, told The Dodo, "We were not present when the turtle came to shore and have to rely on pictures and accounts of people who were present. Luckily, other people were there who did care and stopped this and helped get the turtle to a safe area."

Sadly, Mier also said that the turtle had been hit so hard that he had a very "evident spot on his skull," with a noticeable depression in the head where the bone has been damaged and sea water is able to enter the bone.

"A small amount of pressure around this area and the water seeps back out," he added.

The Dodo also reported that the group "took on the responsibility of providing the veterinary care the turtle needed to hopefully get him returned to the ocean soon.

Vets are said to be reassessing the turtle's health in 15 days once the course of antibiotics has finished.

Nobody Believed Mom When She Described Her Dog’s Nightly Ritual. So She Caught THIS!

Pet owners love chatting with their animal companions and oftentimes our furry friends love talking back! Just about everyone is guilty of having full-on conversations with their pets as if they were a fellow human being at some point in time. After all, they’re part of the family and besides, it just happens!

Which leads us to this adorable video of a family trying to figure out what the heck their dog is trying to say. The camera is trained on the sweet white puppy named Charlie and as you can see he’s very vocal. He’s hanging out in the kitchen with a little girl, probably his sister, who’s egging him on and getting him to talk. Charlie makes some interesting noises that can be interpreted to sound like “blahblahblah” and “i love you,” but it’s anyone’s guess as to what he’s truly saying. If he’s like most dogs then he’s most likely asking for food!

When we talk to our pets it’s a natural, normal, and possibly even instinctual way to both communicate and bond with them. Some pets will even initiate conversations rather than just talk back and a recent survey found that 67% of pet owners claim they understand their animals barks, meows, purrs and all of the other sounds they make. Out of those surveyed, 62% reported that when they speak their animals seem to understand and get the message.

The numbers above are from an AP-Petside poll conducted in 2008 so they’ve likely higher now, as pets are increasingly being considered important family members. Many people even place their beloved animals on equal footing with children, hence the name fur-babies!
