Rare Tortoise taken from Perth Zoo

Now the unthinkable and I am really mad.  What is going on??  A friend’s senior cat was chased by big dogs right off her porch just a few days ago, in the cold climate of the eastern USA and never returned home.  I felt devastated  ….  and now this!

Please see the information on the Perth Zoo website at the Link below.

A BEAUTIFUL RADIATED TORTOISE AT THE  ZOO

Some pictures taken at the Perth Zoo on 29 November 2015 of the Radiated tortoise enclosure.  You can see it is not difficult for someone under cover of darkness to slip into the Enclosure.  The tortoise below is an Adult, the one stolen on Monday was a male sub-adult ( or Juvenile ) with a 15 cm diameter Shell.

The Zoo said someone must have somehow circumvented their Security System.  In 2011 two tortoises were stolen, and now another!

One thought on “Rare Tortoise taken from Perth Zoo

  1. Thank the Goddess that the tortoise has been returned! Apparently someone bought the stolen tortoise, then realised it was from the Zoo, and dropped it off annonymously to a Police Station.
