Red-footed tortoise reported stolen from Buffalo Zoo

The Buffalo Zoo reported to police that someone stole a red-footed tortoise from an exhibit inside the rainforest building.

Wednesday morning, zoo employees noticed two openings cut into a titanium mesh enclosure inside the M&T Rainforest Falls and that a red-footed tortoise was missing, police said.

The tortoise has an estimated value of $4,000. The damage to the enclosure was estimated at less than $250.

According to Wikipedia, the red-footed tortoise is a species of tortoise from northern South America. It is a "medium-sized tortoise" that can grow up to 40 centimeters in length.

The zoo tweeted about the incident, showing a photo of the tortoise munching on some dandelions: "Today we're sad to report that Red, the red-footed tortoise was stolen from Rainforest Falls during an incident at the Zoo last night. We're working closely with the BPD to ensure her safe return."
