RED BANK: MIFFED TORTOISE MISSING

rb tortoise 081915A Red Bank family is asking for helping finding an exotic tortoise that went missing Tuesday.

“It’s mating season, and the male apparently got a little too aggressive,” prompting the nine-inch-long female to climb over a barrier and flee, said borough animal control officer Henry Perez, who’s joined the search in the vicinity of Spring Street and Wallace Street.

Anyone who’s seen the Brazilian cherry-head red-foot tortoise is asked to call Perez at 848-482-0864.  (Click to enlarge)
