Veterinarians remove 11 pounds of coins from sea turtle’s stomach

Veterinarians at Thailand’s Chulalongkorn University successfully removed 11 pounds of coins from the stomach of a sea turtle that ingested 915 coins that had been tossed into the animal’s pool for good luck. The 25-year-old female’s ventral shell was cracked by the weight and the animal developed a serious infection.WLFI-TV (West Lafayette, Ind.)/The Associated Press (3/6)
