nancy and the barnacles1Stranded 12-07-2016


Nancy is a 36 pound Atlantic green that was found near Andy Bowie Park, near our center. She was covered in barnacles. You can see handfuls  that were removed at the top right portion of the picture. Nancy is another victim of fishing line entanglement. She had fishing line coming out of her mouth. She also has a large FP tumor on her right flipper and other smaller tumors.

Nancy was started on antibiotics, vitamin B, fluids and is receiving a cocktail of emeraid, pedialyte, and mineral oil.  She is also receiving cold laser therapy.  Due to her general poor condition, Nancy will be kept in ICU.
