I am always amazed by the utter stupidity of some people when it comes to animal abuse. Here we see a Leatherback which has come ashore to lay eggs, then being abused by the very locals who should be respecting and protecting the animals.

What does it say about them and their education / mentality ? – as we have shown in posts many times recently, probably just another excuse for man to get that much needed selfie; regardless of the suffering and abuse that is given to the animal(s) involved.

  1. Hey, local authorities: how long did you allow this to go on? Have you aided the abused innocent member of her species? We pray she will be all right and eggs may survive.
