Endangered sea turtle killed, trapped in beach chair
FORT MORGAN, Ala. (WPMI) —
FORT MORGAN, Ala. (WPMI) An endangered sea turtle was found dead with part of a chair wrapped around its neck.
The Fort Morgan Share the Beach Facebook page shared the photo of the turtle saying:
"This Kemps Ridley which is on the endangered list was found this morning with this chair around it’s neck. This makes me so mad. How many hundreds of times do we have to ask people to pick their stuff up? It should just be common decency. I think I am going to print this out and carry it with me next time I have to ask."
Alabama beaches have had ongoing issues with visitors leaving trash and items behind, leading to the creation of several beach clean-up advocacy groups such as Leave Only Footprints.
