Anyone Missing a Tortoise?

Anyone missing a tortoise?

The Heartland Fire Department in a Facebook post Thursday said its medics came across a "rather interesting patient."

They said the tortoise was moving slowly near Emerald and Washington Streets in El Cajon and was possibly suffering from "a little shell shock."

Medics transported the plodding pedestrian to the El Cajon Animal Shelter where it will be held until its owner can claim it, according to the post.
