115 year-old turtle wants a divorce

Here's an unusual story from the AustrianTimes. The Austrian Zoo has a pair of giant turtles that have been together for over 100 years.
Zoo boss Helga added: "They are both 115 years old - they have been together since they were young and grew up together, eventually becoming a pair.

But the honeymoon is over...
Zoo management have called in animal experts to try and give the pair counselling - feeding them romantic good mood food, ... but so far without effect.
Zoo staff realised there was trouble then Bibi attacked her partner and bit off a chunk of his shell. And then continued attacking. (Not tonight, I have a headache?)
"For no reason that anyone can discover they seem to have fallen out, they just can't stand each other."
The zookeepers refuse to give up hope of reconciliation,
"We have staff talking to and trying to engage the two in interacting, and we hope that they might find their harmony again."
