A sea turtle abused on a Lebanon beach last week is now recovering and expected to be transferred to Greece for further treatment.Creating frenzy among excited beachgoers, pictures of the turtle went viral on social media outlets prompting animal organizations to rescue and care for the injured turtle under the supervision of the Agriculture Ministry."It was in a difficult health situation and could not even eat ... it got some intensive care, received injections every 72 hours and is recovering now," Sukkarieh said.He explained the turtle was in need of an X-ray but that transferring the animal to such a facility was not possible given its current health. Sukkarieh said the turtle needed between one to three months of rehabilitation to fully recover.
