    Not as long as there's a market for them.

    How sad is this ?!!!

    Omg those crazy little guys! Duck taped legs... how mean! You can see the one on the left ate some of the adhesive and maybe some of his tape to free himself!

    People are a$$holes!

    I hope they find good homes for them! (The torts, not the humans! The humans should be duck taped and thrown in a suitcase, below a plane... on the way from Alaska to Minnesota in .... January!) remove the problem makers!

    Very sad. If they would start handing down really stiff penalties a lot of people would think twice about smuggling and abusing animals

    Its so sad thats A LOT of tortoises/turtles, not to mention the container lids are warped to the max and tapped because they are so jam packed into the containers, poor things. Only 1 year ......possibly 2 for that many abused animals? That makes me mad, thats not a real penalty to prevent this person from doing it again.
