Lost turtle winds up in North Melbourne
A turtle captured having a shell of a time strolling the streets in North Melbourne is lucky to have been rescued before making its way towards a busy road.
The odd sighting was photographed by a local where the turtle was spotted in an alley behind IGA on Errol St on January 19. “Maybe it is someone’s pet?” a resident wrote on Facebook.
“I took it to the Lort Smith Animal Hospital as he was heading for the road, and I didn’t want him to get squished!”
While the turtle’s circumstances remain unknown, questions have been raised whether it may have been heading to a local Shell service station … but one thing is for sure: any investigation is likely to run at a slow pace. •
