8/10/2009--Last year, more than 250 desert tortoises died after a disastrous attempt by the Army to relocate 600 of the imperiled tortoises to make way for a tank-warfare training area in the California desert. Now, the Army and the Bureau of Land Management are rushing forward with a plan to move over 1,100 more tortoises -- and have given the public a tiny, 15-day window of opportunity to express itself on this lethal proposal. We need your help now.
