this is a repost from a myspace bulletin:
From Jane, of Mid-Michigan Reptile Rescue, dated 10/1/2007
Contact info:

"Sometime late Saturday night or early Sunday morning someone broke into the Wilderness Trails wildlife park in Birch Run, Michigan. They took 6 large tortoises...4 female Sulcatas ranging in size from 12 to 65 pounds, and 2 Leopard torts 10 inches and 20+ inches. The Leopard torts belong to us, Mid Michigan Reptile Rescue, and were on loan to the park.

If anyone happens to see any tortoises fitting this description for sale in the Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois area I'd appreciate a heads up. Thanks! "

Please forward this message through your network to assist in the recovery and prevent the sales of these tortoises. If you are perusing through the paper or internet classifieds, please keep an eye out for these animals. Jane is a personal friend of mine and I can also vouch for the rescue itself.

Thank you in advance for your help!

That is sad. I cant believe people these days. I'm far from nieve but still couldn't even come close to thinking of doing such a thing.

I hope they find them. I'll keep my eyes open for torts for sale.

yah...this is a terrible story. everyone keep your eyes posted on craigslist and the recycler, etc etc
its not difficult to get a tortoise as a pet so im sure the motive was to resell these poor little guys.
