A massive tortoise managed to break his enclosure and go for a walkabout town. This is the first time he has ever managed to do this. It is also a first that he has ever shown an inclination to leave his backyard home. The massive creature and African spurred turtle weighs in at many hundred pounds. He is also very long-lived at over 50 years. A local celebrity he has lived happily with his adopted family for over ten years. His owner is so relieved to have him back as he thought he had lost him forever. Steps are being taken to reinforce the enclosure so this does not happen ever again.
Having such a magnificent creature roaming about must have been awesome for whoever encountered him.
