Madagascar: The 151 radiata tortoises seized at Roissy back to the Island

Young tortoises whose species is threatened with extinction had been welcomed for treatment at the Village des Tortues in the South of France, near Gonafron in the Var department.
On a reminder note, the customs services of Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport had seized last December 14 170 young starry radiata tortoises from Madagascar.
The tortoises were hidden in false bottoms of several boxes of sea cucumbers from the Island, and were to be sent to Laos. Some of these herbivorous tortoises that have not withstood the extreme conditions of confinement of their journey died.
