MOBILE, Ala. -- A coalition of animal rights and conservation groups filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday, accusing BP of violating the Endangered Species Act and other federal laws.
The lawsuit contends that through "controlled burns" in the Gulf of Mexico -- which involves oil being corralled by boom and then lit on fire -- are fatal to endangered sea turtles, according to a news release announcing the federal suit. The creatures are unable to escape the boom and are then "burned alive," Animal Welfare Institute President Cathy Liss said in the release.
The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana by AWI along with the Center for Biological Diversity, Turtle Island Restoration Network and Animal Legal Defense Fund.
"While cleaning up the catastrophic oil spill is critically important, so too is doing it in a way which doesn't destroy wildlife in a flagrantly unlawful manner," Liss said.
