BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - A pet tortoise that was either stolen or escaped from its backyard pen in central Pennsylvania has been found.

WJAC-TV (https://bit.ly/1TL3jXD ) reports someone in Spring Township, Centre County, saw the animal and posted a picture of it on Facebook - not realizing it was the same pet reported missing on June 6.

Someone who saw the post, and reported it to the owner of the missing tortoise - named Teddy - and now the animal has been reunited with its owner.

Police initially investigated the tortoise’s disappearance as a theft, because the owner didn’t believe the animal was capable of escaping its pen.

The station reported Monday that it’s still not clear how the tortoise wound up where it was found, a couple of miles away.
