Tortoise Found After 4 Days On The Lam

HERSHEY, Pa. (AP) – A wayward tortoise is safe at his central Pennsylvania home after giving his owners a shell of a scare.

Police say the nearly 40- pound tortoise was found several blocks from his Derry Township home on Thursday. George the Sulcata desert tortoise had been missing for four days after slipping out a back door.

Derry Township police had asked neighbors to be on the lookout because low temperatures could have given George problems.
