150-Pound Tortoise Found Strolling In LA Suburb

Alhambra, CA

At least officers didn't have to issue a speeding ticket when they spotted a giant tortoise ambling down a street in suburban Los Angeles.

Police in Alhambra say they found the 150-pound reptile Saturday afternoon. It took two officers to heft the creature into a patrol car so they could take it to the local police station.

Police then turned over the reptile to animal control authorities.

Giant tortoises are not indigenous to the Los Angeles area.

Authorities are asking anyone whose big tortoise went missing this weekend to contact them.

They say the reptile has some distinctive markings. They aren't revealing them for now, however, to ensure that whoever claims the tortoise is its rightful owner.
