Strange! Turtle Vomits Money Like ATM …….bring good luck to its owner

A strange story occurred as a turtle releases money like an ATM which make many to wonder.

As reported by news.sky.com,the 25-year-old female sea turtle called Omsin, nicknamed Bank, spent years swallowing the money thrown into a pool in a park in Thailand by tourists.Strange! Turtle Vomits Money Like ATM …….bring good luck to its owner

The array of currencies eventually formed a heavy ball in her belly weighing 5kg (11lbs) and eventually cracked her shell, causing a life-threatening infection.

Omsin underwent a gruelling seven-hour operation as specialist veterinary surgeons removed a few coins at a time.

“I felt angry that humans, whether or not they meant to do it or if they did it without thinking, had caused harm to this turtle,” she said.

A public appeal raised around 15,000 baht (£347) in donations to pay for the surgery. Strange! Turtle Vomits Money Like ATM …….bring good luck to its owner

“The belief is that throwing coins into the turtle pond will make the coin-thrower live longer,” Rungroj Thanawongnuvej, Dean of the Faculty of Veterinary Science at Chulalongkorn, said in a statement.

“Throwing the coins is more bad karma because it is animal torture.”
