(KGBT) - Police in Spain believe a woman may have been sexually assaulted, after a doctor found a dead baby turtle in her vagina.

The Spanish newspaper El País reports the British tourist was visiting the Canary Islands and went out with friends and does not remember what happened that night. She went to the hospital the next day with extreme pain in her genitals.

Doctors called police after they found a dead Chinese pond turtle inside of her, El Pais reported.

The paper says the woman did not give a statement to police, and the case is closed until investigators have more information.

The hospital is investigating how a photo of the turtle taken after it was removed from the woman ended up on WhatsApp.
