Officers who transported the turtle to the Turtle Hospital in Marathon told staff there "to pick the toughest-sounding name" they could, because the reptile had a lot to overcome to get better.
Chuck Norris was fitted with orthopedic plates to stabilize its shell.
Additional treatment included broad-spectrum antibiotics, vitamins, lactulose and a diet of squid and fish.
