The woman, Stephanie Marie Moore, has been arrested and charged with illegal harassing and harm of the turtles according to the state’s Marine Turtle Protection Act.

Moore was wanted on a warrant for harassing the endangered animals, but the nearby Melbourne Police Department did not have any details about the second woman seen in the pictures.
