    It seems that every other day we are reading about some poor turtle or tortoise that's been hurt in some way. At least this story has a happy ending.

    Definately a strange (and sad) story. I know there have been several cases of fishermen shooting sea lions here (they follow the fishing boats and steal fish off the lines) but I can't imagine why someone would take a shot at a turtle.

    The person who shot this poor sea turtle is a *censored* *censored* skunkbag who needs to straighten his *censored* mind!!! It's extremely sickening to hear something like this. I wish the person who shot Bruce would get shot just the same.

    Sorry for venting.

    I saw that in the paper today, but didn't have my glasses ( at urgent care) so couldn't read much.
