A Coast Guard ship heading from Honolulu to the Panama Canal to help with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill cleanup made a brief stop last week to rescue a sea turtle that had been caught in a fishing net.

A Coast Guard spokesperson said crew from the Coast Guard Cutter Walnut sent a small boat to retrieve the turtle. The turtle was brought on board, freed from the net, then released back into the ocean.
