Search is on for stolen 17-year-old Queens tortoise

20 Juillet 2017

Police in New York City are on the hunt for an individual suspected to have stolen a 100-year-old tortoise from an environmental center in Queens.

Investigators believe the 90-pound tortoise was taken from his enclosure, which is attached to the outside of the main building, sometime shortly after the center closed around 4 p.m. on Sunday. "He's not an animal you can just come and pick up and walk him half a block". The African spurred tortoise, according to the environmental center, is the third-largest tortoise in the world and the largest mainland tortoise.

Easing off the pedal will reduce the car's speed, while releasing it will bring it to a stop and hold its position, even on an incline.

Police were searching for surveillance video at the center on Northern Blvd. near the Cross Island Pkwy.

Alley Pond, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the well-being of its parks, also focuses on educating the community on better ways to sustain the environment.
