A couple who live near me have found a tortoise and have made no attempt to find the rightful owner and have just kept it, they found it in Louth Lincolnshire.

I'm really sorry to hear that. Someone may be grieving the loss of their pet. Do you know them well enough to talk to them about it?

And tell them about this forum, in case they need help with the proper care.

It's a strange phenomenon, but almost always is the case. When people 'find' dogs or cats their first thought is, "I've got to try to find the owner of this animal." But when they find a tortoise the toss him into the back yard (garden) and keep him. Even in countries that don't have native tortoises, like the UK. We have many UK members. Hopefully someone will have some words of wisdom for you.
