Those Dead Sea Turtles

Necropsies completed on five of the 25 dead sea turtles found along Mississippi beaches in the past few days show no evidence of oil killing the reptiles.

In what my possibly be a coincidence, more than 30 dead turtles have been found stranded on Galveston and the Bolivar Peninsula south of Houston this month - an unusually high number that has puzzled researchers, in part because most are so decomposed that there are few clues left about why they died.

A few minutes after I posted this, I was alerted to this article about the public being barred from the autopsies done on the turtles. Something's up.
