So a few daze ago the sun shined here and Mary Knobbins went out to graze...I sat with her just watching for a while then I came in...when I say the sun came out, it was 45 or 50 degrees with clouds. I'm having medication problems and I didn't feel so hot and I sat on the couch and fell asleep. Almost 3 hours later I woke up, and it was pouring outside. I went out to check on my tortoises and I didn't see Mary K in her pen, oh hell, she wasn't inside the shed either...so I went back out in the pouring rain and scanned the yard for Mary and the tire looked funny and I walked over and darned it she wasn't again trapped in that tire in the pouring rain and I touched her she was very cold that means that she's been stuck in that tire while I've been having a nap... so I have no idea that how long she's been there, I know she's too cold and I know I couldn't get her out. So I tugged and I pulled and I tugged I pulled and of course now that I've disturbed her she's fighting me. I guess she likes to be stuck in the tire and so I went running in the house called on the phone to my guy up the street and he comes running down and just as I heard his feet coming up the stairs on the deck I realized that it was Mary's back feet that was keeping her trapped...her back feet were straight out and they were stuck in the tire. So I started hitting her on her feet and she pulled them into her shell and popped out of the tire but I took her in the house... yeah 40 lbs, that was a thrill and I took her in the house and I soaked her in warm water then took her back out put her in her shed closed it up raised the heat in there and moved on. I would have traded my car for a camera at that moment...lol I'm sorry I don't have a picture but here we go... I got pictures of this one... now I got trouble in River City and it's name is Mary Knobbins to be continued... 100 2283

So you've got to weigh the pros and cons about keeping the tire where she can interact with it. I'm thinking you've got to figure out a less dangerous toy for her.
Or. . . . a Smaller or bigger tire for to play with. . .one that she can't get stuck in....
Since she seems so fond of that tire...
