A 20-year-old Florida woman was arrested for allegedly disturbing sea turtles in the area earlier this Summer. The woman is being accused of riding a sea turtle while it was nesting.
The woman and her friend posted photos of themselves seated atop nesting turtles to Snapchat, but the photos quickly spread to the rest of the Internet, catching the attention of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conversation Commission. Unbeknownst to the women, there is a Marine Turtle Protection Act, which makes it illegal to harm or harass marine turtles while they are nesting in the summer months.
The woman, named Stephanie Marie Moore, was arrested on Saturday after a warrant was issued for her arrest. Head over to Complex to read more.
