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.
