surgery for turtle

A green sea turtle named "Bank" had to have surgery to remove 915 coins she had swallowed.  People would throw the coins into Bank's fountain.  Many in Thailand where Bank lives believe that throwing a coin on a turtle will bring longevity.  Unfortunately the coins became an 11-pound ball that cracked Bank's ventral shell.  This could've caused her death.  The veterinarian was very angry that people would do this.  Bank is recuperating and hopefully will make a full recovery.  sea turtle
