More than 100 turtles saved after Texas cold snap

GALVESTON, Texas (AP) — Experts say more than 100 green sea turtles have been rescued after this week's cold weather in South Texas left them paralyzed.

The Houston Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1aJLyPp ) reports most of the reptiles discovered Tuesday were in the upper part of the Laguna Madre. National Park Service spokeswoman Donna Shaver says green sea turtles have been making a comeback in the Galveston area.

Shaver says more than 500 cold-stunned green sea turtles have been located since Nov. 25 but nearly 100 of the creatures were dead or died later.

Shaver says the 101 turtles found this week were discovered by federal and state officials and a few volunteers. Cold-stunned turtles are taken to parks, zoos or other rescue facilities to be warmed.
