In 2005, Winter was found in Titusville, tangled in a crab trap line. She was dehydrated and near death. The blood circulation was cut off by the trap line so veterinarians had to amputate. She was taken to the Clear Water Aquarium where teams of volunteers kept her alive. Now, two years later, she has adjusted to her new tail.
