Angry Have you hugged a sea turtle today? Don't.

Respect the Locals: Sea Turtle Selfies Are Uncool — and Illegal
"There’s no reason anyone who lives in the Aloha State should not know that touching, feeding, riding, pursuing, harming or otherwise altering a turtle’s behavior is illegal... Noting the possible exception of a foreign tourist who just landed in Hawaii, [Hawaii Land and Natural Resources Chair William] Aila said that even then people should have enough common sense to know that these are wild animals that should be respected."

Right on, they are NOT pets, but natural inhabitants, who know little or nothing about our desires.

The sea turtle is probably rolling its eyes when a human gets touchy feely.
