Stop the turtle rides

I am all for Mr. Gallaher's rescue and public education efforts of his African land tortoises. The one thing I feel is questionable is letting children ride the turtles. I have seen him in several locations through out Brunswick County and have noticed he lets children ride on the top of the tortoises. I would question if nature made tortoises to support excess weight on their bodies and short stumpy legs.
