Pug and Turtle Share Stormy Mexican Sands as Hurricane Nears

A pug and a sea turtle had a “Mexican standoff” on the stormy shores of San Jose del Cabo recently, as Hurricane Kay neared the coast.

Footage by Deborah Wallendorf, which she said she recorded on September 7, shows the curious pooch approaching the turtle head on before eventually backing away.

Wallendorf said she counted at least five olive ridley turtles “coming on shore to dig their nests and lay their eggs during daylight”. Credit: Deborah Wallendorf via Storyful
