A large (at least 4 1/2'), dead Leatherback Turtle was on the beach about
75 yards East of the nesting spit at Milford Point this morning. I think
this stretch of beach is called Cedar Beach.  I approached it but did not
notice any ropes or buoys attached to the body. I didn't get that close, so
maybe I just missed seeing any ropes that were there. Police and a reporter
for NEWS 12 were at the scene.
