It was reveal due to lack of Federal funding, the Desert Tortoise Conservation Center located in the southern edge of the LasVegas Valley in Nevada is to close down and hundreds of desert tortoises will be "euthanized", a polite way of saying killed off.

How can killing these animals possibly be allowed? The people that captured and emprisoned them must be held responsible for their wellbeing.

Noted and signed. Thanks, Cal. Seems the only "solution" people think of is killing when they come up against a problem they can't figure out. Even a zoo would be preferable to killing these tortoises, which have probably lived longer than most of us.

Humans seem to live by the creed "destroy". Is it any wonder that the more people I meet, the more I love my fur babies!

So what is wrong with putting these desert tortoises back into the habitat from where they came? I was just in that area and I bet there is plenty of areas around Lake Mead where these guys can live happily with out our help.
