Group warns of cru­elty

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The be­headed bod­ies of 10 sea turtles have been found over the last two months on Plaka beach on the is­land of Naxos. Arch­e­lon, the Sea Tur­tle Pro­tec­tion So­ci­ety of Greece, be­lieves that the num­ber is too high to sug­gest that the an­i­mal’s deaths were ac­ci­den­tal. Arch­e­lon called on cit­i­zens and the au­thor­i­ties to help ap­pre­hend any­one who is killing the sea turtles on pur­pose. The or­ga­ni­za­tion said that there was a case last year when a sea tur­tle was found dead af­ter a breeze block had been tied to its body to keep it from stay­ing afloat. Any­one who has an in­for­ma­tion about cru­elty to sea turtles is en­cour­aged to call the coast guard head­quar­ters on Naxos or Arch­e­lon.
