This long-necked turtle was found by a passerby in St Kilda Botanical Gardens in Melbourne tangled in a fishing line. She took it to Melbourne Zoo, where it underwent a six-hour operation to have a hook removed from its insides. Vet Dr Andrew Hill of the zoo’s vet staff removed the hook by making a hole in its belly shell. He then used some adhesive bought from a local hardware store and normally used in house renovation to fix it back to the body of the turtle.
