    The Gopher Tortoise has recently been uplisted to “Threatened” status, and the FWC finally stopped issuing permits allowing them to be killed. However, those who got their permits before the deadline were grandfathered in and so are still allowed to “entomb” the animals.

    Moving them is certainly more humane than burying them alive, but it’s not a great solution. The tortoises have a powerful homing instinct and keep trying to go home, often ending up as roadkill.
