Mizquitos Indians hunted sea turtles that are part of their diet. Organizations that defends animals rights are opposed to this practice considered cruel to a specie that is on danger of extinction. Since they are trapped the turtles can live 15 days without eating food and tied till the moment that they get killed. (Australfoto / Nicolas Garcia)
