Workers in Miami`s Seaquarium cooked and ate a turtle that had died there even though it was a protected species. However because it died naturally no charges could be laid.
The leatherback turtle is one of the most endangered turtles but a veterinarian allowed another worker to take it home and make stew out of it.
One critic of the center said "This is the absolute height of stupidity. We're changing the name to the Miami Seaquarium and Barbeque."
