Beloved sea turtle to be euthanized

JEKYLL ISLAND, GA (WTOC) - After years of treatment, one of the most beloved patients at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center is set to be euthanized.

WTOC first introduced you to Griffin in 2010, but the loggerhead sea turtle hasn't recovered since he was admitted back in 2007.

Doctors say his condition is similar to that of a human stroke and he'll never get any better, so releasing him to the wild or to a zoo exhibit is not an option and they just don't want him to suffer anymore.
