Rep. Garcia Eases Rehabbed Sea Turtle Back Into Keys Waters

ISLAMORADA, Fla. Keys (CBSMiami) – Lately, politicians have given us plenty to reasons to criticize them.

Not today: U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia, D-Fla., aided staff and volunteers from the Florida Keys-based Turtle Hospital as they released a rehabilitated loggerhead sea turtle into the ocean Saturday.

The sea turtle was released into the waters off Islamorada.

The turtle, named Grace, was treated for about three months with antibiotics for an intestinal infection after it was discovered floating in an Upper Keys canal.
