Turtle release gets national TV coverage

Turtle Hospital officials are planning quite the going-away blowout for one loggerhead turtle that swam up to the docks behind the Marathon-based facility in late March.

Florida Keys residents and visitors have been given a public invitation to join in the release of the 73-pound turtle, at 9:20 a.m. Sunday at Veteran's Park on Little Duck Key, Mile Marker 40.

Dubbed "Kincaid," the turtle has reached celebrity status, as the release will be televised live on the national Fox and Friends show on the Fox network.
