Sadly enough, giant tortoises are edible. VERY edible.

I wonder if this is the first time tortoise shiat has ever been directly mentioned in the Chicago Tribune.

She is something of a local celebrity, appearing at children's birthday parties, fairs and block parties.
"The kids don't ride her or anything, but they chase her around,"

how nice. i have a cat and we can put bags on its feet and my dog we can tie a tin can to its tail and really entertain the kids.

Same thing happened in Milwaukee four years ago. Looking on the web just now to see if they were ever found, I see that tortoise thefts are quite common...

Do you make up these questions, Mr. AbbeySomeone? Or do they write 'em down for you?

Someone needs to stop this tortoise, he's already killed Aeschylus and Vorbis!
