Good news! A tortoise, which is now notorious for running away, has been returned to his home. Poky, who was also caught after running away from his previous owner last August in the city of Port Huron, was on the move again this week. Deputies from the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office were called to the area of Lapeer Road and English Road in Clyde Township. They were told there was a tortoise in the roadway. Poky was located in the area shortly before 4 pm. Deputies were able to corral Poky with no injuries to the deputies or Poky. The current owner of Poky, who lives on Nye Drive, said he had left Poky outside in his enclosure to enjoy the nice weather until he escaped. The owner was surprised that the tortoise had run away and will make sure to make the enclosure in his yard more secure.
