CapeCodOnline: After hearing about hundreds of endangered sea turtles washing ashore on Cape Cod Bay beaches, Jennifer Robbie decided she’d walk the Eastham shoreline Thursday morning looking for any among the dead marsh grass at the high tide mark.

Robbie, who lives in Harwich, found 3 small endangered Kemp’s ridley sea turtles, but then spotted a beast of an entirely different magnitude just south of Cole Road Beach.
