A potential law suit is in place in hopes of saving sea turtles. The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Topsail Beach has filed a 60-day letter of intent to sue the North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries for using gill nets they believe injure sea turtles. The hospital recovered three more turtles Thursday night. Although these turtles were not caught in gill nets, director Jean Beasley said many are. A representative from the attorney general's office said the letter of intent is currently under review. Then they will follow up with their client – North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries.
