"Brutal & Babaric!"

That's how Stacy Gatcliffe describes the discovery of the remains of a dead turtle in Balandra.

In a Facebook post, Gatcliffe says mother turtles coming up onto our beaches to lay their eggs, totally unaware that blood-thirsty humans are waiting to ambush them for a meal.

The post included several photos of a dead turtle, including some graphic ones showing the guts of the dead animal.

"We personally saw this mother swim ashore last night in Balandra, only to find her mere hours later, ripped apart for human consumption," Gatcliffe said

She ended the post saying: "Add this statistic to your murder toll Trinidad & Tobago!!!"
