Tortoise on the run?

By Tara Lindquist

Tortellini the Tortoise went missing from her home in Hayfield on Saturday afternoon. Her owner, Mackenzie Linnae said she was outside planting flowers and had Tortellini in her enclosure in their yard. When Linnae went to check on her ten minutes later she found that Tortellini was missing.

Friends and her fiancé Anthony Cornell searched the area and could not find her. "She couldn't have gotten very far in that short amount of time," Linnae said. "She's a tortoise. She doesn't move very fast." Linnae said Tortellini has never been able to escape from her enclosure in the five years that they have had her. "We just want her back," she said.

The couple is offering a $50 reward for Tortellini's return. "If someone took her they can just put her back in her outdoor enclosure, no questions asked, we just want her back," she said. She's also fearful that if she were taken that someone would try to put her in the stream thinking she was a turtle. "She can't swim, she's a tortoise. They can't swim."

Tortellini disappeared from the corner of 1st Street and 3rd Avenue in Hayfield. Anyone with any information is asked to call 507-696-0910.
