Mating Turtles Shut Down JFK Runway

Video link

Not just a pair of mating turtles, mind you. About 150 of them were trying to make it to a spot to lay their eggs; Runway 4 just happens to be in the turtles' path to sandy beaches. It happens every year, but some years bring out more turtles than others. Though it delayed some flights yesterday morning, no one seems to be holding a grudge. Some airlines are even poking a little fun at the issue. Jet Blue tweeted, "Oh @JFKTurtles, we could never stay mad at you ... Glad you made it to your honey moon spot safe." Yes, JFK Turtles have a Twitter account.
