TURTLE ESCAPE!  via @MyNews13

TITUSVILLE A large tortoise on the loose in a Titusville neighborhood has been returned to its owner after digging its way out of its yard and snacking on neighbors’ lawn.

Officers initially called the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, but then another neighbor came by and said he knew where the tortoise’s owner lived, four houses down.

So officers went to the owner’s home, and he “identified” his 50-pound pet and carried him home.

“They dig burrows,” owner Justin Cadiz said. “They dig to stay cool, and I guess he got out from under the back fence.”

A large hole could be seen under the fence where the tortoise dug itself to freedom.
