Warbot did you catch the red eared slider? Did you have a permit to catch the leopard tortoises? Why would you want to take them from the wild?
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Ja nee *sigh*.. And so another episode of Days of our Lives starts... I don't understand this. Is it attention seeking?

Marcell, Perhaps a visit to warbot should be in order?

I am a member of Unesibindzi Tortoise Sanctuary group on face book. Thanks for all the good work you guys are doing. My fiancé and I actually want to take a drive up to Harties this weekend. We will be sure to pop in.

Regards,

Are you keeping them?? Or would you rather be safe and either release them or bring them to us?? I hope you know what could happen if you are caught if you don't have a permit??

Kind Regards


Well, I'm glad to see that alot of people care about them :)

The plundering of our natural resources, in particular, our reptile resources, is a subject close to many of our hearts.
In light of recent controvercy, this "funny" is perhaps done in bad taste?
No offence is intended here Warbot, but perhaps seeing where others are coming from may help you understand why it isn't funny.

I do not find jokes about illegal reptile keeping amusing, on a public forum?
