Who on earth would attach a helpless turtle to a high-flying bouquet of helium-filled balloons?
That's what cops in Oceanside, CA, are trying to figure out after resident Chanelle Wright noticed just such a spectacle last weekend:
He was just swinging his arms trying to get out of it. Somebody had taped him to the balloons.
The fire department eventually arrived with a ladder truck, but a big gust of wind blew the box turtle and his entourage to the ground just in time.
The turtle was cut free, and is resting comfortably at the local Humane Society while police investigate.
