Giant Tortoises Keep Mysteriously Winding Up Dead in this Forest

In the tranquility of Devon, England's Ashclyst Forest, a crime against nature has unfolded not once, but twice, shaking the foundations of our commitment to wildlife conservation. The discovery of seven Aldabra giant tortoises found dead in the forest is suspiciously similar to a previous incident from 2021. These occurrences are not just tragic; they are a dark mystery that must be solved.

Sign the petition to demand Devon Police and environmental protection agencies work to thoroughly investigate the circumstances and connection between these two tragic cases.

Experts believe these tortoises suffered in captivity before being abandoned, highlighting the stark reality of exotic pet ownership gone awry. The Aldabra giant tortoise,  a species revered for its size and longevity, requires specialized care – far removed from the freezing temperatures they were subjected to. Their tragic end in a landscape alien to their natural tropical habitat speaks volumes of the cruelty they faced.

The repeated abandonment of these tortoises raises alarming questions about the illegal trade and mishandling of exotic animals. It underscores the imperative for a systemic response that addresses both the immediate incidents and the broader issues at play, including the enforcement of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora regulations and the promotion of responsible pet ownership.

Join us in calling for a comprehensive response from Devon Police and environmental protection agencies. Together, we can advocate for a future where such acts of neglect and cruelty are met with the full force of the law, and where every creature is afforded the protection and respect they rightfully deserve.
