The Tortoise Garden in Cornwall has once again been targeted by spineless,
greedy thieves. The tortoise sanctuary has been running for 11 years, and had 7
tortoises stolen in June. You may have heard that another 5 were taken on
Sunday; 2 seven year old Indian Stars, 2 two year old Hermanns and a mature
spur-thighed tortoise. Last night further tortoises were stolen:-

"There is worse news, they came back in the night and stole my big giant and
several pens of toddlers, leopards, and god knows who else."

If you have any information which may lead to the recovery of the stolen
tortoises, please contact John Hayward, coordinator national theft register, who
will also deal with the issuing of any reward due for the recovery of the stolen
animals and the conviction of the despicable people involved in the theft.

That's terrible. I do hope she gets her torts back as does the family in Notts. It's hard to imagine that many being taken and then to hear nothing. Sorry to hear this new. Good thoughts going their way.

It happens everywhere. We had several rare torts disappear from a local attraction one night. Turns out it was a few of the workers hired to renovate a section of the park where the tort exhibit was. They thought they could get a quick buck from selling them. The people they tried to sell them to became suspicious and then noticed the story about the stolen torts in the paper. The police set up a sting and nabbed these idiots and the torts were recovered safely.

These thieves will get what they deserve eventually. Just hope the torts aren't harmed in the process.
