A case of sheer human negligence was rushed to our hospital, a tortoise in a really dire condition. This is the obnoxious result when a speeding van meets with a very slow and sweet little creature. Our doctor saw to the case immediately and gave the poor tortoise first aid, the shell was badly smashed and the vital organs were severely damaged. The tortoise passed away by evening. This species is quite popular in the exotic pet trade and it is illegal to keep them as pets, they are protected under Schedule III of the Wildlife Protection Act.
