Police Officer Shoots 'aggressive' Tortoise Dead

A policeman in Uganda has reportedly shot a tortoise dead, maintaining the reptile attacked him at his home.

The incident, which has left Officer Charles Onegiu
"traumatized and stressed," occurred in the Nebbi district in the north of the country.

Onegiu claims he was relaxing in his home after work when the hard-shelled assailant made his move.

"I tried to scare it but the tortoise became very aggressive. I took a stick to chase it but it instead became more violent making me to make alarm," he told New Vision newspaper.

After threatening the creature with a plastic chair, the tortoise left the policeman’s home. It was then that Officer Onegiu "instinctively" pulled his firearm on the "big white tortoise."

"As I talk now, I am still scared because it is the first time I have seen such an incident happen in my life or heard of one," he told New Vision.

A local Christian group later prayed for Onegiu, "before burning the dead reptile to ashes," the paper reported.

Re: Police Officer Shoots 'aggressive' Tortoise Dead

I have a California desert tortoise and they're about as threatening as a rock. Even when my tortoise is running as fast as she can you can just stroll away leisurely without fear of attack...it's like they're predators waiting for you to turn your back so they can attack. They're really quite harmless and friendly little creatures...and they live literally forever. Maybe the one's they have in Africa are like their honey bees and attack in swarms and kill folks.

Musta been terrifying for that officer, coming face-to-face with that cold reptilian death barrelling down on him at 0.000002203020 miles per hour.

Yup. Just as typical as the black guy being the faster between the two.
