Randers, Denmark- A zoo is hoping for the return of three rare turtles.
Officials at the Randers Tropical Zoo said three Burmese Star turtles were taken from their exhibit during visiting hours on Sunday.
Employees say the fences in the exhibit are too high for the turtles to have escaped on their own (plus...how would you NOT catch them? They're turtles).
The zoo says it was attempting to breed the turtles and will not press charges against the thieves if they return the animals unharmed. [UPI]
