When They Saw This Giant Leatherback Turtle In Distress, They Didn’t Hesitate To Help

When Jacksonville Police Lieutenant Steve Mullen and Officer Brad Smith were out enjoying a sea on their day off, they saw something in a H2O that fitting investigation. As they got closer, though, they satisfied it was a matter of life and death…because held in a crab trap was a nine-foot-long leatherback turtle!

The wire was wrapped around his neck, so any time he attempted to dive, it usually tightened further. Seeing that if they didn’t cut a wire shortly he would die, a dual officers leapt into action.

Thanks to these dual off-duty officers, another life was saved. And given that turtle isn’t able of observant thanks, bravo, gentlemen!
