Update: Bug the tortoise is back home

Bug enjoying a snack.

Good news: The Russian tortoise missing in the Westgate area has been found.

Westgate neighborhood resident Ann Meyring had been missing her pet tortoise, Bug, since June 2. But on Saturday — more than a week later — Meyring found her by the back door.


  1. Maybe Bug was looking for a place to hibernate, but found out it was too late. Tortoises are very interesting animals.

  2. The story doesn’t mention the “I heart Paris” sticker on Bug’s shell, nor that the turtle appeared to be suffering from jet lag.
