The animals were taken in by BLM with the promise that they would protect and care for them. These wonderful animals are on the endangered species list and should be protected at all costs. Other placement needs to be found if funds cannot be appropriated to allow them to continue to live where they are.

"LAS VEGAS — For decades, the vulnerable desert tortoise has led a sheltered existence.

Developers have taken pains to keep the animal safe. It's been protected from meddlesome hikers by the threat of prison time. And wildlife officials have set the species up on a sprawling conservation reserve outside Las Vegas.

But the pampered desert dweller now faces a threat from the very people who have nurtured it.

Federal funds are running out at the Desert Tortoise Conservation Center and officials plan to close the site and euthanize hundreds of the tortoises they've been caring for since the animals were added to the endangered species list in 1990."

Stop the planned slaughter of tortoises due to lack of funds. There are other options available. Transfer them to other rescue centers where they can continue to live out their lives. Apply for grants to keep the center open.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      THESE BARBARIC SCENERIES ARE MONSTERSWORK, NOT HUMANDEGRADING, ABSOLUTELY WRONG & UNACCEPTABLE AND TO BAN IN THE MOMENT! THIS HAS TO STOP IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!

      Pure infantile primitivism - what kind of unhumane monsters are able to handle and destroy LIVING BREATHING CREATURES in that way is unbelievable.

      HAVE YOU ALL LOST YOUR HUMANITY AND BRAIN, FERAL PERSONS RESPONSIBLE??

      People need to vote unacting authorities and officials acting irresponsibly to futuregenerations and living creatures out of occupations ONCE AND FOR ALL!

      DEFORMED UNHUMANE MONSTERS SHOULD SEPARATED AND LOCKED AWAY FROM CIVILIZED CITIZENS FOR DON´T DISTURB THEIR FEELINGS IN A NONHUMANE WAY!

      DEMAND ALL INITIATORS ACTING IRRESPONSIBLY TO PAY REDEMPTION TO FUTUREGENERATIONS !

      MONSTERHUNTERS NEEDED

      IT IS TIME N O W TO DEMAND ALL BRUTALIZERS and KILLERS ONTO A LIST TO CONDEMN THEM TO EXTRACHARGE FOR NGO´S working for FUTUREGENERATIONS!

      HOW CAN HUMANS ARE AS MONSTEROUS AS YOU, PERSONS RESPONSIBLE, LET A LIVING CREATURE IN THIS SITUATION - HOPE YOU EARN THE RESULT AS YOU DESERVES!
