FL - Someone is decapitating sea turtles on Cocoa Beach.
Because, you know, mounted sea turtle heads are all the rage right now in home fashion. You hang them above your elephant skin sofa.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. --
Police said they want to know why someone has cut the heads off sea turtles on Cocoa Beach.
It's not the only trouble for turtles this nesting season, and sea turtle advocates had a warning and a plea Wednesday night.
Officials said their best theory is that it's some sort of trophy or souvenir that's selling online.

I cannot see (hope to God I never can) how anyone could be so cruel to another living creature. I stopped the other day to help a huge turtle get across the road we were both travelling and found out that he could move faster than I can. Hilarious. Actually, I didn't realize I could move that fast!"This Time We Get it Right!"

THIS disturbs me as well!
Two people said they witnessed the act.
"The guy was sawing the head off," said Brandon Smith, of the Sea Turtle Preservation Society.
Or, at the very least, whip out my phone and snap a picture of the POS!Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.
