I guess we could blame BP for sea turtle death

But not directly from their spill in the gulf last summer.
And the botched aftermath of the most eco-friendly administration America has ever seen.

There are/were an elevated number of the endangered Kemps-Riley sea turtle along the upper gulf coast and NOAA says it's not because of BP.

They blame shrimpers.
I lived on the gulf coast and know how much shrimp are lost from TEDs -which isn't a very small number, but how disliked they are because of the intrusive .GOV that enforces that rule.

I also know how easy it is to tie them shut and get that many more shrimp per pull.
What better way to cover your tracks than to disable a TED during a oil spill?
