In this photo provided by the Florida Keys News Bureau, Tom Luebke, left, and Bette Zirkelbach examine an endangered hawksbill sea turtle while stopped on the Florida Keys Overseas Highway Saturday, Sept. 1, 2012, in Islamorada, Fla., enroute to the Turtle Hospital in Marathon, Fla. The egg-laden reptile was found on a St. Croix, U.S.V.I., beach Aug. 24 with serious injuries to its front flippers and was flown to Florida Saturday courtesy of American Airlines. Wildlife officials believe it might have been hooked by a fisherman and then gaffed to remove the fishing gear. (AP Photo/Florida Keys News Bureau, Andy Newman)
