‘Idiots’ Surfing on a Turtle Are in a Heap of Trouble

Surf should not be up.

Two men in Australia have raised the ire of the internet after posting a photo of themselves on Facebook standing on a turtle in the sand like they were surfing. The picture has generated a ton of backlash from disbelieving and outraged people.

A wildlife official says the turtle may have been dead at the time the photo was taken, while one police official denounced the men’s actions:

These guys are just complete idiots – there’s no way they should be doing what they were doing. Per usual, they’ve been idiots and posted it on Facebook…(and) hopefully people on Facebook will let them know what idiots they were. I hope they get their comeuppance on social media.”

Authorities continue to investigate the matter. The men are also facing fines of up to $20,000.
