After two years, sea turtle again swimming free

- A sea turtle is back in the wild with some high-tech help.

'Ozzy' was found caught in some fishing line and a crab trap rope in Pasco County.  It was so bad, she had a severe cut and broken bone in her flipper.

She's been at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

Today, she was released near the Sandpearl Resort, wearing a new satellite tag.  It will let the aquarium and even web users track her movements over the next months.

It's the first time CMA has used this type of technology for one of their released animals.
