An endangered sea turtle was left seriously injured after an American tourist apparently dragged it out of the water, beat it with sticks and sexually assaulted the creature.
Local video surveillance cameras showed Robert W. Schlong, an American tourist, sexually molesting the endangered sea turtle which has now been transported to an animal refuge.
Tortuguero Police arrested Robert W. Schlong after several hotel employees reported the man having sex with multiple sea turtles over a two-week period.
“We asked him if he wanted a girl to spend the night with, but he said no and pointed to the ocean. He said he preferred the turtles,” one hotel employee told local reporters.
Manuel Rivera Castro, a hotel employee where Robert W. Schlong was residing, said locals called him the “Tortuga Amante” or “turtle lover” because of the tourist’s well-known sexual appetite for the endangered species.
