Tortoise found in Lancaster City

Posted: Updated:

The Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary is searching for the owner of a tortoise found in Lancaster City early on Tuesday.

Forgotten Friend's Jesse Rothacker said the tortoise was found wandering around the 800 block of Hand Avenue. Lancaster residents recognized the tortoise as an exotic species and turned him over to the Lancaster County Environmental Center.

The tortoise was then transferred to the Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary.

Rothacker said the tortoise appears to be in great health, leading experts to believe he was recently released.

If anyone in the Lancaster area is missing the tortoise, the Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary asks them to contact Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary at info@forgottenfriend.org to describe the tortoise they are looking for.
