Another escape mission was thwarted last week when Sheldon, the 48y/o Sulcata tortoise, found a weak spot in his fence and made a break for it.  

A neighbor spotted him on the road and contacted the local police, who found him strolling along about 100 yards from his home. His humans were alerted to his location and arrived  to drive him home, luring him to the car with a juicy red apple.

All and all, Sheldon won the day. He was home in time for a nap after an EPIC adventure, a big juicy apple, and a ride home!
