According to Rademeyer, they confiscated the tortoises because the owners did not have permits to keep them.

« People tend to forget that the owners of tortoises have to have permits, just like those who keep jackal, snakes and some spiders.

« A permit is needed even if the tortoise is being kept for cultural purposes, » said Rademeyer.
