Quotes

"The illegal killing of wildlife is always a concern, especially when that animal is non-threatening like the tortoise and it's part of a long-running research study" said Josh Hurst with Arizona Game and Fish
"Some of the outrage is, it's a tortoise," said Cristina Jones, turtles project coordinator with the Arizona Game and Fish Department. "Top speed: eight miles a day. So to shoot something that's basically the equivalent of a cactus, not only in speed but in longevity, it's just really shocking that somebody would do that."
"A peanut doughnut is an untapped resource – something that's hard to find, but that we all want" she said in a statement. Brown says she came up with the idea late at night when she couldn't sleep and wanted to pass the time
...like the tortoise and it's part of a long-running research study," said Josh Hurst, the Operation Game Thief coordinator for Game and Fish. "The department has been conducting research for years to monitor and conserve desert tortoises -- a protected species -- in an effort to help keep them off the federal Endangered Species List. Now the study has one less animal and years of study data is compromised."
