Too slow tortoises being trained to speed up

Three giant tortoises are being put through their paces by trainers at Twycross Zoo.

Normally, Speedy, aged 70, Tim, 40 and Shelly, 30, plod along at less than one mile per hour.

However, the zoo has built an extended outdoor pen for the animals and keepers were concerned the lumbering leviathans would take too long to be put to bed at the end of the day.

Seriously? I mean "Yay" turtles can be taught but I don't understand the why.

The article states

Did it dawn on anyone to start heading them to bed a bit earlier??

I'm confused.
