Box Turtles stolen, then returned to Riverview Park and Zoo

Peterborough, ON, Canada / CHEX TV

Box Turtles “Chubby” and “Jackson” were stolen from the Riverview Park and Zoo early Saturday morning and the story went viral.

The good news is that both turtles were returned Saturday night, about 14 hours after they were taken.

Both turtles are doing just fine, but will need to be quarantined for three months, meaning they will not be on display this summer.

The Peterborough Police were on site and the investigation is ongoing.
