I remember years ago over here in the UK..........

Some folks used to attach fireworks (sky rockets) to the tails of cats and light them always around Bonfire Night...

Horrible, despicable people.........

These people with the turtles should be caught and have their testes tied to a rocket and see how they like it....

Sad, sad people.................

This took a good amount of ingenuity, time and probably some money as well.

They had to account for the animal's weight, wind direction and potential velocity.

Moreover, the tortoise was enjoying him or herself. I wish I could fly too.

They should be rewarded not punished.

Appoint them to oversee NASA.

It was the flapping of the arms that cracked me up.

I did not know Turtles had arms.

Wow, some of the comments here, advocating killing a human being for harming an animal. I couldn't even count the number of turtles and snakes I shot off logs when I was a kid. Some of the best fun we ever had.

Well heck, the turtle is alive and safe now; but, the South American priest in an armchair with hundreds of balloons, who floated out into the Pacific and was never found ... well, there's no PETA for priests.

And see, they just proved there IS "Ascension" in 2012, for 1 box turtle at least.

With all the talk of animal rights, and how they should be treated as good as, or better than humans, why does everyone jump to this being a bad thing.

Maybe he enjoyed the ride?

Is it cruel to let a human do thier first parachute jump? Or for a dog to go surfing or skateboarding?

Why can't a turtle have a flight?

Too many people think they know what animals think, and way too many animal activists do more harm than good.

Spoke to an animal rescue centre education show guy last week who said many activists who claim to be doing their thing for the animals are the biggest pain in a rescue centre's ass, and are the reason why they get a lot of their animals.

Animals can enjoy stuff like this too.

I'm glad the turtle is okay, with the way he was waving his arms about I'm not sure if he was scared or perhaps he really was having fun!

Waiting in anticipation for a bunch of people with "justice for the flying turtle" signs.

I bet you if it was a dog hooked up to a balloon no one would have a problem with what I said.

I hate animal cruelty myself and find this act deplorable.

With that being said, PETA is over the top. I don't consider them animal rights activists, I consider them pagan animal worshipers.

But, PETA has already put out a $2500 Reward for the pranksters.


Wish they would put out a 2500 reward for all those who use animals in porn.

That is an assault against an animals dignity, and it happens in huge volumes being filmed and traded on the net.

I'd love to see those siccos caught and prosecuted, and huge rewards given to those who have helped find them to prosecute.

Those who play pranks on animals for giggles such as this turtle being taped to a balloon need to grow up. Animals are not here to torture or harass for the entertainment of humans.
