Ichigo's Shell

This is what Ichigo looks like out of the water. If you look closely you can see that she has a piece of shell missing from the side and also the top of her shell is dotted with many circular dents which I can only assume was done by a human. The top is also very scuffed up. I wonder how she was being kept before she was rescued..... I actually saw the woman who I think must have been the one that sold Ichigo to Ines who was the one who bought her out of bondage. She was sitting on Mott & Hester with another large turtle wrapped in green plastic netting, so tight it could not move one bit. I couldn't look for more than a second. I know I cannot save every animal in need and it hurts when I am reminded of it.
