A sea turtle was returned to the wild Sunday after being treated for injuries and dehydration.

The seven-foot-long, 655-pound leatherneck turtle was found stranded near Cape Cod on Thursday. Marine biologists from the New England Aquarium say it was underweight and in shock. It was also missing part of its left front flipper.

After a few days of care and feeding, the turtle was returned to the sea.
