Coast Guard Finds Endangered Sea Turtle Trapped In 1,800 Pounds Of Cocaine

This November, a U.S. Coast Guard boat found a loggerhead sea turtle that had been trapped in floating packets of cocaine worth over $53 million. The turtle, whose species is considered vulnerable and close to endangered, was rescued and set free.

At first, the crew aboard the Thetis, a Key West-based Coast Guard boat that was deployed in the eastern Pacific, did not not even notice the trapped turtle, The Miami Herald reported. The cutter sent out a small boat to investigate a suspicious bundle of debris and crewmembers were shocked to find the entangled sea creature, along with the 1,800 pounds of cocaine, which were valued at over several million dollars, The Telegraph reported.
