I’m sorry, I don’t know any thing about sea turtles- but you HAVE to call the sherif or police.

I hope this is a joke. If not you need to turn these pet stores and people into the authorities! NOW!!! You can not keep this turtle. You must find an organization that you can turn them over too.

Not to be rude, but he isn’t trying to do something illegal, and we have to help this turtle! There is no saying if this is a joke, but we can’t just let a turtle die because it is “illegal”!
It is illegal for the OP to have bought the turtles. Its illegal to own them. They need to turn them over to the proper authorities and to turn the pet stores in to authorities also.

Please hand them over to the proper authorities you can not keep 2 green sea turtles one of the biggest in the world they can get up to 700pound and I'm sure you don't have the sea in your back garden you can't care for them like they need to be cared for at home I'm totally shocked..

Not sure what your point is. There is no reason one can't turn the people in and the turtles over!

Take the turtles to where you think they were taken from and let them go. Let Mother Nature take care of them or not. Your just going to give them a slow death. They are not fresh water turtles as you know, yet you have them in fresh water.

@wellington was responding to the comment before you made by tripod. She is in agreement that this is very wrong.

I think there is much too much anger going around on this thread. I’m guessing this is a joke, because there was no response from this person, and how long could a sea turtle live in fresh water?
