The cops in Alhambra, California nabbed a tortoise yesterday. They told us about it on their Facebook page, in hopes of reuniting tortoise with human or humans.
It wasn’t your dime-store tortoise.
It has a sweet face. As tortoises do.
It’s back with its people now, and we know its name.

The tortoise is actually named “Dirk.” He has been reunited with his human family who actually live in Alhambra. According to 21310 of the Penal Code, it is illegal to possess a “dirk.” We enjoy keeping families together, so an exception was made in this case.

Clark. I’m a little sad, because I liked Dirk – that was a great name for a tortoise.
Happy homecoming, Clark.
