Clearwater Marine Aquarium needed to take care of a loggerhead turtle who got a fishing hook caught in its mouth.

The 150-lb turtle grabbed a couple of hooks from a couple of brothers who were fishing near Honeymoon Island on Sunday.

One of the brothers was able to remove one hook, but with the help of the Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission, the turtle was brought to shore.

Clearwater Marine Aquarium successfully removed the second hook but they report the turtle is still in serious condition.
