POLICE AND OFFICIALS from the Barbados Sea Turtle Patrol are currently investigating the butchering of a nesting female turtle near Schooner Bay Condominium in Speightstown.
The turtle, which came up to lay its eggs, was discovered with its head slashed. There was no evidence of poaching.
This is the second time in a week that members of staff at the condominiums have dealt with such a killing. It follows one over the weekend near King’s Beach Hotel and another, on July 20, in the car park of St Alban’s Church.
