Tortoise

We were alerted when the turtle was discovered near the village of Balmullo by a member of the public walking his dog on Monday 19 September.

The tortoise is currently being cared for at our Edinburgh and Lothians Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre.

Animal Rescue Officer Robert Ward said: “The gentleman was walking his dog in a field near Hillview Road when he came across the tortoise.

“The tortoise was obviously well looked after. He is quite large and seems to have a few years behind him.”

Anyone with information relating to the tortoise should contact our animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
