★ THE STORY OF THE SACRED TURTLE

Hundreds of people are working around the clock to clean up a lake in the heart of Vietnam's capital in hopes of saving a rare, ailing giant turtle that is considered a sacred symbol of Hanoi.

He weighs 200 kilograms, believed to be more than 100 years old and his plight have captured the sympathy of people around the world. He is unique, a species of his own, scientists generally agree that He is one of just four members of his species, Rafetus swinhoei. There is a second in another lake in Hanoi and two more in a zoo in China.

He is rooted in Vietnamese folklore, and some even believe the animal that lives in the lake today is the same mythical creature that helped a Vietnamese king fend off the Chinese nearly six centuries ago. Vietnamese people call him "cu rua, " a word of great respect reserved for "great-grandfathers".

Legend has it that in the mid-15th century, King Le Loi defeated Chinese invaders with a magic sword given to him by the gods. After the victory, the king was said to be boating on the lake when a giant golden turtle rose to the surface and snatched the sword in its mouth before plunging deep into the water to return it to its divine owners.

The lake was later renamed "Ho Hoan Kiem, " which means "Lake of the Returned Sword, " and the tale became an important part of Vietnamese culture that continues to be taught in school and performed at popular water puppetry shows. The lake, which measures one mile (1.6 kilometers), is a city landmark for its curved red bridge leading to a temple on a tiny island. Weeping willows and other leafy trees shade a sidewalk that rings the water, a popular site for tourists and Hanoians to exercise and relax.

He still swims alone in Hoan Kiem Lake and in the past has been glimpsed only rarely sticking its wrinkled neck out of the water. But it has recently surfaced much more frequently, alarming the public with visible raw open wounds on its head, legs and shell.

But the lake has been trashed with everything from bricks and concrete to plastic bags and raw sewage. It is not uncommon to see men urinating directly into the murky water. The pollution is slowly killing him. Not only that, He is now being menaced by red-eared slider turtles.
