Over 900 coins removed from Thai turtle’s stomach

mrpops09_CMOD_mrpops09_CMOD_ Chief Moderator
Thai surgeons have removed 915 coins from a sea turtle’s stomach during an emergency operation.

The 25-year-old female turtle, affectionately named ‘Bank’, spent years eating coins that had been thrown into a pond in Bangkok by tourists seeking good luck.

The ‘penny diet’, however, formed a 5kg stack in the turtle’s stomach that cracked her shell, causing a life-threatening infection.

    People should probably treat animals a little better

    Image result for caging dogs for meatI agree.

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

    No argument from me.  Fish are also commonly made sick and even killed by people tossing coins into ponds.  Even though fish are pretty alien creatures compared to most other animals, they still deserve good treatment.

    People would be better off asking one another for help, trying harder to achieve their goals and, of course, asking God for help with things they can't handle.

    Thailand's coin-eating turtle has died


    Tourists used to toss coins at a green sea turtle that lived in a pond in eastern Thailand, wishing for luck and longevity. But swallowing the shiny tidbits turned out to be a death sentence for the reptile.

    After having nearly a thousand coins removed from its stomach in a four-hour operation two weeks ago, the turtle — nicknamed "Omsin," or "Piggy Bank," — died Tuesday.

    Omsin, estimated to be 25 years old, had been rescued by Thai navy personnel who saw her visibly ailing in the seaside town of Sattahip. She was then examined by a veterinarian, who found the coins inside her stomach.

    The story attracted international media attention, and a public clamor to ease Omsin's plight ensued. The weight of the money inside her had cracked her underside shell and threatened a fatal infection.

    The cause of death was intestinal obstruction that blocked Omsin's protein intake, while nickel toxicity from the coins damaged her immune system, said Dr. Roongroje Thanawongnuwech, dean of the veterinary school at Bangkok's Chulalongkorn University.
