Human beings are pretty smart animals. When compared to the rest of the animal kingdom, we're the smartest by quite a large margin.

With that being said, there are some people who aren't the brightest, but everybody also has their "dumb" moments. Some people's moments may be a bit more on the extreme side than others, but there are times when people just take it a little bit too far. That's exactly what happened when beachgoers at Havana Beach, Lebanon saw a turtle.

One beachgoer decided it would be a good idea to pull the turtle out of the water and throw it onto the beach.

A crowd began forming around the turtle, hoping to get pictures with it.

People then began taking photos, even putting a boy on the turtle's skull. While this doesn't seem like an overall dangerous scenario, it takes a turn for the worse.

The combination of these things put the turtle in a critical state. Some people stepped in to stop the torture of the turtle, helping to bring it to safety.
