Animal Party Criticizes Dutch Embassy Turtle
The Dutch Party for the Animals criticizes the turtle “Luis” of the Dutch Embassy in Brazil. The turtle forecasts the results of the soccer games of the Dutch team in the World Championship for the embassy. Party leader Thieme demands that the turtle be freed. She said that if the Dutch play well, the embassy doesn’t need animals to forecast the results.
A spokesman for the embassy replied that, “It is very good that Luis lives in the garden of the embassy for a year already. An employee bought him from an acquaintance, who otherwise would have made soup out of him. Luis now lives in a garden the size of five soccer fields.”
