Instead of just covering this, why don't you post a notice so people can go see it

Another cold front coming...should have waited

There you go turtles, go,be free and live your life.

LOVE Clearwater Marine Aquarium!

Why release them now? They were cold-stunned and it will get colder in a day or two and they will be stunned again.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE BABY TURTLES!

Going to be a cold shock for them!!! Why not wait a couple of weeks?!?🐢🐢🐢

Hi watching from Ireland 🇮🇪

Looks cold in that water

And there is a shark

Lauren Bell lol...good job

That water is still cold..

Watching from Acapulco can't download videos right now

Love the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

My prayers are with the turtles

Only girls can release turtles

Live drone video over a Coast Guard ice cutting ship in the Connecticut River.

OMG THomas Vilmin Did you go to school!! It's not en Ice making boat it's an Ice breaking ,ship one that breaks the ice ... sheesh some people you gotta wonder!! sheesh!!

Global warming at work!

Certainly this is a direct result of Global Warming.

Global Warming... Yea right HAHA

Why on earth do we need a ice making boat?

That's not cutting it.

I’ve lived in that area of CT for 35 years before moving to FL. The cutters are breaking up the ice to stop the ice jams which cause flooding.

The video is excellent....Really LIVE?

I’ve seen them do this in the Hudson River in Ny it was awesome

The news should REALLY differentiate between 'Live' and 'recorded earlier'.

Hey Donna Wilson, yep, went to school. I was trying to be funny. Apparently didn’t work on you. Sheesh

Thomas Vilmin: lol. Never know, we could lose the recipe!

I would hardly call that tug a ship.

I think it needs to back up and go home!

"Ice cutting ship", Really? Try again....

it's in Tallahassee. FFS read people!

Good morning from Syracuse, In.

A coast Guard ice cutting boat

Does not appear to be underway?

thank you USA 🇺🇸 Coast Guard.

What is the is flying

Thomas Vilnius...SERIOUSLY???

That's beautiful though!

Of course they're stuck.

I know as an adult that this is supposed to be funny and a joke. Small children do not get this kind of humor...and she is a small child. She is taking this conversation very seriously and we should too.

Looks like her daddy had the last word and like the part when her dad said he would hold him hostage and put him in the cubboard and the guys leg will be broke and she'll be a nun working for Jesus.. Love It :

Beth, I thought he said it was another chicken farm like this one that the Senator was involved with.

Cage free and free range? Here that means closed up in a huge building, still overcrowded, chickens with barely any feathers and looking sickly, yep, KANSAS has those places! Those need closed as well!!

So tired of seeing animals abused and mistreated. I'm not sure what's wrong with some human beings and why they have no compassion. 😡

They have had a huge line of violations for many of YEARS!!! MY SON IS 30 yrs old & it’s been going on since he was a kid! SHAME ON THOSE SO CALLED PEOPLE!

Boycott both Publix and Walmart, and let them know. Publix has a very bad record in respect to farm workers in Immokalee. I do not shop at Publix!

Chickens Lives Matter ...... They provide protein, vitamins and nutrition for human and animal consumption. Why must they be tortured in order to provide us with that..... Free Range or better housing is an a solute must....

Google if “Cage free” and “free range” actually mean what you think they do - they are still in horrible, gross conditions.

Yes n it is about time... Feel so sorry for any animals that need help. Glad they caught those people who did treat animals badly...

of course..another florida farm...no humane treatment of animals..MONEY and GREED THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL.

This just breaks my heart in two. We should honor the animals that give their lives so we can survive. Shameful!

I just can't believe that this has gone on for so long! I thought they had to have someone constantly making sure they were ok

I've been here 31yrs back then I noticed terrible farm conditions I grew up on a farm in Wisconsin it's about time surprised this is just being addressed

Nothing new....so stop with the not going to buy eggs from there anymore lol. Yea you all are so give it a break.

We do not need to eat eggs to be healthy or live. In fact I’m healthier now than when I ate eggs and meat.

This is ridiculous I'm glad they went in and took care of this and I had said continue on shutting down these bad places.

LOL NO DISCLOSURES? This gets even better! So see what we humans are allowing to happen if we don't do something about this horrific sadness.

The only way to cure this is to make sure people around you cannot live like animals call your city your counties control the area they live in by condemning those who want to live like bugs

My sister was a pest control person she said that roaches Ark animals they will eat a bar soap that's left in a bathroom. They carry over 2 million diseases I want to eventually will take over this world

Theresa thats not right!!we expect people to be humans and do the right thing not eating eggs its not the solutions to horrible act

Susan, tofu is not the only source of protein/food for vegans. And there's new research that unless you're allergic, it's fine in moderation.

This is so sad and please people get educated about how in humane is this I'm very sickening for this I'm going to see how long it takes to get this law passed this is terrible and very sad.

Cage free eggs just means that the chickens are in a stall together, all huddled in, and have their beaks cut off so they don’t peck each other to death.

This guy is a talker. Talkers make me thirsty. If any more words come out of his mouth, Im gonna have to eat every chick in this place..

Its a shame at how bad farmers have become! Never in my life would I have ever heard of such a thing. SHAME SHAME!
