A massive sea turtle caught in fishing gear off the coast of New Jersey was freed by a team of rescuers this weekend.


A good Samaritan on a recreational fishing boat spotted the entangled, leatherback turtle offshore on Saturday and reported it to the Coast Guard, which then led an effort to rescue the approximately 800-pound animal.

Hmmm.  That turtle must have come from Mississippi.

Man, I grew up in Miss back in the 50's.  We use to go to the swimming holes and grab those big lava head turtles and use them as our boats.
