Animal welfare groups sued BP for burning endangered sea turtles and asked a federal court to stop the oil giant's "controlled burns" on the Gulf of Mexico spill.

"It is horrifying that these innocent creatures whose habitat has already been devastated by the oil spill are now being burned alive," Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) President Cathy Liss told the court in Louisiana.

The lawsuit filed by AWI, Center for Biological Diversity, Turtle Island Restoration Network and Animal Legal Defense Fund said BP was violating the Endangered Species Act and other laws with their "controlled burns" in the Gulf of Mexico.


I have to wonder though, as horrible a death as being burned alive is, is it really worse than what these creatures face as the alternative?

Ah, don't worry about it, BP has a solution for this too. They won't let anything go to waste out there.

For those that fill up their tanks at BP, just make sure to ask them if their gas is dolphin free, as well as their turtle soup.

Yeah this is pretty disgusting.

I don't have to many words for this...

Break out the charges for Environmental Negligence and failure to follow proper procedure when establishing the well.

There can likely be a pretty long list....
