After watching the stuck animal for a moment, the pair decide it needs help, and lift the turtle from the rocks.

It begins to panic and attempt to move away – kicking out as the pair realise one of its front flippers is wrapped in multiple layers of plastic.

One of the two briefly attempts to pull the plastic away before realising the extent of the problem, and moving the creature to the beach.

He then begins to unravel a large plastic bottle from the mound of rubbish – twisting the shredded plastic around to release it.

The pair spend a few moments longer attempting to untie the ribbons of material from the turtle before resorting to more desperate measures.
