Did any of the turtles survive? It looks like one or two may be crawling away because its on the nozzle of the hose. Would love for more information to be included in these types of articles.

I'm with several NGOs and with like to share this photo for educational purposes. Who do I talk to for permission? (slkoschker@hotmail.com)
It would be lovely if there were any survivors but even if undigested, logically they would have all drowned. Unless the catch was virtually during feeding and gutted immediately?
