So, here’s totally stinky news…not happy stuff at all, I’m afraid!
Fan Melissa Savage pointed me in the direction of a Washington Post article that came out last weekend. It seems that the dry-up of federal funds at the Desert Tortoise Conservation Center may lead to its closure and Bureau of Land Management may need to euthanize hundreds of the tortoises! Oh no!
The article is quite in depth – so a good read…just CLICK HERE to access it on the Washington Post’s website.
UPDATE: There was so really good conversation on Facebook about this, including links to articles disputing that more than about 6 (ill) tortoises would have to be euthanized, so I’m going to embed the Facebook post below for ya:
