Bad news. We've lost our beloved turtle. He was taken by an eagle.

Oh no! I'm so sorry. A dear little character.

For real?

We had 6 eagles circling the house when he disappeared. A local friend told me how his dog had been almost taken by an eagle and I found a smashed turtle when I was running outback a few weeks ago (really surreal). So, I feared the worst but luckily I was wrong.

Incredible (for my small view/corner of the world) .Good for you and your turtle. When I read you I thought of : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aeschylus#Death and Terry Pratchett's "Small Gods" book : https://wiki.lspace.org/mediawiki/Book:Small_Gods That's why I asked, not that I didn't believe you but it sounded surreal to me.

I did enjoy that book, I think that's where I first heard of death by tortoise too
