They say the turtle was suffering from poisoning that might have been a result of consuming coins that the Thai tourists offered her. 

An endangered green turtle named "Bank" died a few weeks ago after going through a four-hour long surgery in Thailand. The surgery removed nearly 1,000 coins from her stomach.
