Search Under Way For Missing Tortoise In NE Kansas

Associated Press - August 7, 2013 7:16 am

Wabaunsee County

A family pet has disappeared from outside a home in northeast Kansas, but chances are it didn’t get very far unless someone gave it a lift.

WIBW-TV reports (http://bit.ly/157gtRE ) the animal is a 50-pound tortoise that Geary County Sheriff Tony Wolf describes as about the size of a truck tire.

Wolf’s office received a call Monday night that the African spurred tortoise was missing from its pen in rural Geary County, outside Junction City.

Authorities are investigating the case as a possible theft. But they also say the pen’s gate may have been left open by accident or that the tortoise was frightened by stormy weather and burrowed underground.

Come on K sal we do not need stories like this. Who really gives a darn but the owners of the turtle who is probably soup by now. Get some better reporters.
