Endangered Sea Turtle Dragged Behind Car Deserves Justice

Target: Luis Guillermo Solis, President of Costa Rica

Goal: Find and punish people who allegedly dragged and later cut up a live, endangered turtle and killed it.

An endangered green sea turtle was reportedly tied to a car, then dragged on the road by people who proceeded to slice the turtle up to kill it. In the disturbing footage, people laugh as the turtle suffers unspeakably. These animal abusers even felt comfortable showing their faces in the film, which goes to show how dangerous they must be.

Harming, killing, or collecting these endangered turtles can be punishable by up to three years in jail. What these people did to this poor turtle goes beyond cruelty. These killers should serve a much steeper sentence than a measly three years in jail. Demand that the authorities get involved, find the people in the video, and aim for the maximum penalty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Solis,

An endangered green sea turtle endured some of the most horrific cruelty imaginable when it was dragged behind a car, then reportedly cut it up and killed. The monsters responsible for this are seen on camera laughing and enjoying themselves as they torture it.

We urge you to do everything possible to identify the people who did this and then help see to it that they are sentenced with the most severe penalty possible.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This is the LICENSE PLATE # for these cowards: 465762

    So it should be easy for ANYONE in the area to find them. It shows up clearly in their own video.

    Weak little alleged “men.” There is no proof that these are “men” at all. They’re just weak little subhuman cowards. Send them to JAIL for a long time and give them a huge fine for torturing an animal by both dragging and cutting up the turtle while still alive, as well as for the turtle being an endangered species. That should be an ADDITIONAL charge, not the only one.

    If they’re not given jail time, maybe someone will take it upon themselves to drag them behind a truck for a good long while.

    • Agreed JAIL & STIFF PUNISHMENT SENTENCE. THIS WAS AN ENDANGERED TURTLE. ENFORCEMENT OF THEIR PROTECTION NEEDS TO BE HARSH & REALLY NOT FORGIVABLE. What are The Rules & Regulations for WHEN THEY ARE NOT ENFORCED, OR COPY CATS THINK “IF THEY GOT AWAY IT, THEN SO CAN EVERYONE”.

    horrible

  3. Ugly, mean, sickening souls. Shameful. Very shameful…how would they like to be tied to a car and dragged?

    Catch these vile and heartless bastards and jail them for life. It absolutely sickens me the unimaginable torture and suffering subhuman monsters like these vile and sadistic monsters commit against the innocent. They all should be dragged behind a car and sliced up the same as that helpless and precious Sea Turtle.
    They are psychopaths and must be treated as psychopaths and locked away for life so no other innocent and helpless sentient beings has to suffer in agony by heartless and callous monsters like these bastards.

    This is an unspeakable crime of international significance. Costa Rica, whose economy is heavily dependent upon ecotourism and the country’s otherwise responsible reputation for environmental stewardship, MUST find and punish these heinous criminals!

  7. I think I just found the answer to the question “what would you do if you were Superman?”

    There is something inherently wrong with the soul of a ‘person’ that derives enjoyment from the deliberate suffering they inflict upon an animal or human being. They should be made to experience in full the agony the turtle did.

    Provide me with the bastards name and contact details to enable the required payback!

  10. did they eat it or not if they ate well food/hunger kinda trumps the aspca ,although a quick death is more P.C.and admittedly less cruel,ok let’s evaluate …..clean kill = turtle soup for everyone
