Juvenile loggerhead hooked on Myrtle Beach State Park Pier yesterday. Pulled up onto the pier with a drip or drop net. One hook found in shoulder under carapace. Turtle was transported to SC Sea Turtle Center in Charleston by NMB Sea Turtle Patrol A fiesty turtle but triage revealed her to be in poor body condition. X-rays revealed one reason, two fishing hooks in stomach as well as a large wound in mouth where a fishing hook may have been yanked out. Turtle will undergo surgery  to remove hooks
