A break to stretch their legs

The Turtle Man came to Denver and caused quite a stir. Randy Gallagher, of Sunset Beach, said he travels around the country with a trailer full of giant tortoises to raise awareness about the animals. He was traveling with five tortoises that he says he raises and passed through Denver on Sunday afternoon, stopping at a grassy patch on the corner of old N.C. 16 and N.C. 73 to let them graze. They attracted the attention of many passers-by, who stopped and posed for pictures with the creatures. Jeff Willhelm
