Cupid is an Atlantic green sea turtle. She was entangled in fishing line and was found offshore by a Texas shrimper. He noticed Cupid had gone through his Turtle Exclude Device (an apparatus in shrimp trawls that prevent sea turtles from getting caught and drowned in the nets). When he saw that Cupid was tangled in monofilament line, he rescued her and called Sea Turtle, Inc. for assistance. They named her “Cupid” because it was Valentine’s Day!
Cupid’s injuries were minor and she is swimming in an outside rehabilitation tank.
