Sea turtle far off course

Your rating: None Average: 2 (1 vote)

The Seattle Times and our local NPR station report (scroll all the way to the bottom of the page), that a Pacific Ridley sea turtle is being treated with antibiotics at the Seattle Aquarium, after she washed ashore near the town of Ocean Shores. Ridley sea turtles normally don't venture this far north, and the cold water has exacerbated an injury. The turtle, which has been named "Arial," is expected to recover.
