American nazis defile turtles with swastikas


This 7 November 2019 video from the USA says about itself:

Authorities in Washington are trying to capture two turtles and arrest the person who painted swastikas on their shells after photos of the Nazi-adorned animals shocked a Seattle-area community this week.

The turtles were first spotted in a pond Tuesday at Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park in the city of Renton. Police said they tried to capture the animals, but the reptiles “have evaded apprehension”. They are now working with state and federal wildlife agencies to try to catch the turtles and remove the anti-Semitic markings from their shells.

This inhumane and offensive act has no place in our community,” the Anti-Defamation League’s Pacific Northwest Regional Office wrote Wednesday on Twitter.

In response to the disturbing abuse, local residents are planning a “Rally Against Hate” at the park on Saturday afternoon, according to the Renton Reporter. At least one Facebook user reported seeing the swastika markings “a few weeks ago”, but she wasn’t sure who to report it to.

Turtles tagged with swastikas at Gene Coulon to get rehabilitation

RENTON, Wash. – Several turtles that were painted with swastika symbols on their shells at Gene Coulon Park were recovered Friday, officials with the Renton Police Department said.

The City of Renton stepped in, getting federal help so the turtles can be rehabilitated. …

Police said the species of turtle is not native to Lake Washington, so someone left them in the park.

Washington state law enforcement officials say the leader of a local neo-Nazi cell — the same group that was connected to the death of the Jewish teenager Blaze Bernstein — may have planned to manufacture untraceable weapons known as “ghost guns”: here.
