Thailand turtle that ate 5 kg coins died

Thailand turtle that ate 5 kg coins and then had an operation to remove them from its stomach died. The 25-year-old sea turtle ate coins thrown into a public pond out of superstition. By the time they were removed, she was carrying 5kg of coins. The unusual mass of metal had cracked her shell, making the initial seven-hour operation necessary. The coins were thrown into the pond by visitors hoping that it will bring good luck and it killed turtle. Now, a practice should become less common after widespread coverage of the case in Thailand.
