Turtle anyone?

A few weeks ago while riding our bikes, we noticed a man in a hardhat with a large, live turtle/tortoise hanging from a stick.  We could hardly believe it!  Especially since it looked very similar to the Galapagos ones we've seen at the Shanghai zoo.  I couldn't help but wonder if somebody had stolen it from the zoo and was trying to re-sell it.  I didn't think it was a site I would ever see again and then last week, right outside our school, this man is dangling an ordinary looking turtle from a stick. 
(This isn't a great quality photo since I took it from across the street, but you get the idea)
