This turtle was discovered on New Year’s Eve on Woodgate beach in Queensland’s Bundaberg region by a local who had been enjoying a walk. The turtle was found dead strangled in rope from a crab pot. The turtle wouldn’t have stood a chance at breaking free from the rope and would have endured a horrific, painful death. When fishing, please always check your gear regularly and ALWAYS take it with you home and dispose of it properly if it's broken - NEVER leave it in the ocean.
