What would you do?
Senior Pumkin, while driving around without KeesKennis bought a......
.... skilpad (tortoise) about 1/3 the size of this guy photographed by Cats.
She bought it from someone next to the road where it was tethered by its hind leg.
"I felt so sorry for him there in the blazing sun"
I told her that she is helping the trade in wild animals.
If nobody buys, there is no market.
I looked up on the internet to find a wild, de-mined area and drove about 20 kmm to set Skillie free.
A cousin of mine have had a tortoise in her backyard for 20 + years now. It comes when called.
It takes a little time though.
