I suspect too many doughnuts had something to do with this and it would have been captured a lot quicker if it was not throwing them out behind it.

    Well, no need to be offensive about it, Ian. You know how damned fast those tortoises can be.

      I did enjoy the final words.

      Tortoises can run as fast as 1mph (1.6km/h) "if they really want to," Mr Wilfong said.

    A Facebook friend shared an article a few months ago about a "mad beaver" that was terrorizing a part of Canada. I find this story believable. Animal news stories can be wild.

      I can only begin to imagine the wild police chase trying to catch the tortoise speeding along at 1 mph, if he really wanted to go that 'fast'.

    If history depicted it right, he beat the hare fair and square.

    Don't tell me it was Channel 6 news who covered this, no other than April O' Neil reporting...

    I think that the police cruiser needs a tune up.
