okay so was the reason they were removed solely because of the cold wet weather, which is dangerous to the tortoise? Or did somebody complain about the [harmless] RTV silicone adhesive? Which BTW would not have damaged their shell in any way, and peels right off. If they were removed because of the former, which would be a health issue for the animals, well then fine and good. But in general the animal rights people IMHO go over the top all too frequently.
