Eastvale (CBSLA) — East Veil A large turtle found wandering around the city of Easter Sunday reunites with his family.
The African spurred tortoise king was discovered by Angela and Javier Pueras in the middle of Eastvale Street. According to John Wales, a spokesman for the Riverside County Animal Services Department, the couple involved flagged Adam Heisten, the head of animal services, when he made a round to pay attention to the wrong turtle.

The old skateboard, owned by Pueras’ son, moved a 15-year-old turtle to get a job and was nicknamed Tony Hawk. But it didn’t take long for Eastvale’s Bonnie One to come forward to claim King. She said the turtle was owned by her husband. The husband calls the turtle “his baby”.
The strong winds that struck the area the day before Easter Sunday are believed to have blown the turtle enclosure gates and allowed the King to leave.
Before King was taken home, Animal Services chipped him in case he went out again.
The African spurred tortoise, also known as the African spurred tortoise, is one of the largest turtles in the world.
