Day 67

Bob Cesca, featured contributor/columnist for the Huffington Post, found an interesting article at (and when I say interesting I really mean sad, infuriating and sickening) the following is his comment with a quote from the article:

Go Fudge Yourself, BP

I've been meaning to post this for a couple days now. They're burning sea turtles alive.
VENICE, La. - A boat captain working to rescue sea turtles in the Gulf of Mexico says he has seen BP ships burning sea turtles and other wildlife alive.
Captain Mike Ellis said in an interview posted on You Tube that the boats are conducting controlled burns to get rid of the oil.
"They drag a boom between two shrimp boats and whatever gets caught between the two boats, they circle it up and catch it on fire. Once the turtles are in there, they can’t get out," Ellis said.
This is a holocaust against nature.

I guess this turtle got lucky!
