Border Patrol Agents Make Unusual Rescue of Endangered Sea Turtle
By Steve Neavling
Saving lives is nothing new to Border Patrol agents.
But what two agents found on the beach while patrolling South Padre Island National Seashore in Texas was anything but ordinary.
The agents came across a Kemp Ridley turtle, the most endangered species of sea turtle. Unfortunately, the nestling turtle wasn’t responsive while laying eggs, prompting the agents to call the park service for help.
A biologist showed up and recovered the eggs for incubation.
