Great. Now the City is trying to claim they can't remove the cross because a threatened species of tortoise is living at the base of it. :what: ... 870628001/

Should the city of Pensacola lose its appeal to save the Bayview Park cross from removal, there could be one last line of defense for the cross: A gopher tortoise.

A burrow spotted at the base of the white, brick wall directly in front of the cross was confirmed by marine biologist and Bream Fishermen Association President Barbara Albrecht to be the home of the species, which has been listed as threatened in Florida since 2007.
