Turtle weighing nearly 500 pounds rescued on Massachusetts beach

Volunteers have rescued a massive leatherback turtle off a Massachusetts beach.

The Cape Cod Times reported the turtle was spotted on First Encounter Beach in Eastham at around 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

Mass Audubon Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary Director Robert Prescott says the juvenile turtle weighed between 400 and 500 pounds. It took six volunteers to take it off the beach.

Prescott said leatherbacks are the largest of all sea turtles, and can weigh up to 2,000 pounds.
