South Africa: Stop the Illegal Trade in Reptiles!

Animals  (tags: wildlife, suffering, reptiles, tortoises, chameleons, sadness, endangered, environment, cruelty, ethics )

- 2154 days ago -
Tortoises and chameleons are captured by local people and kept in very poor conditions without food or water. They face days, weeks or months of deprivation waiting for a vehicle to stop and for money to exchange hands. Many will die before they are sold.

I get that poor pepole will do things in order to care for their families. But others should not exploit them or the innocent animals.
