Disturbing Video Shows People Riding On The Back Of Leatherback Sea Turtle

A shocking video from Indonesia shows a group of people riding on the back of a sea turtle.

The clip was, reportedly, filmed on July 5, and it shows a bunch of adults and children getting on top of the turtle.
The poor animal had crawled onto the beach to lay an egg, and the video starts when an older man sits on the leatherback sea turtle, while other men are encouraging him.
Other people then have a go at the poor turtle, and one man even carries a young boy onto the animal.

One man starts throwing sand at the turtle before shoving it off and grabbing one of its flippers.

Believe it or not, he then stands on the animal’s flippers as it tries to make it to the sea.

The local authorities have not made comments about the incident yet, but many people have slammed the group of men after the video was shared online.

The leatherback sea turtle is the largest species of turtle, and it can weigh more than 1000 pounds.

The leatherback sea turtle is a very vulnerable animal, and its numbers have rapidly declined in the past few years.

These animals don’t have many natural predators, but their main threats are plastic pollution, fishing nets, and lobster traps.
