YAY FOR SAM! This family clearly loves their big guy, so glad to see a boy and his tortoise reunited (and to read that he was extra spoiled after his adventure!)

MODESTO, CA – After four days of searching for their 12-year-old boy, a Modesto family was reunited with their 70-pound tortoise Sam Monday night.

He was found by a neighbor a block away from the family’s home, but they weren’t sure who to call until they saw a story about Sam on Monday’s News10 at 11.

Sam was reunited with his family Monday night in good health after a kind neighbor “spoiled him with every kind of fruit imaginable,” said Edwards-Altadonna.
