The picture made me cry. Can’t deny it at all. So I’m posting as a link here for those who don’t want to see the sad.
The many wildfires this summer have damaged houses, injured and killed people, and burned acres of land, but we haven’t heard much about the poor animals caught in destruction paths. The above tortoise was found in Mannford, Okla., over the weekend. The tortoise likely died from smoke inhalation before being burnt to a crisp, and it had little chance of escape.
