Police 'Pull Over' Slow-Moving Tortoise in Florida



    Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office

    A tortoise was "pulled over" in Palm Beach County for doing what comes naturally: going too slowly.

    According to the Facebook page for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, the tortoise was plodding along Wednesday on Gateway Boulevard westbound, just west of Lawrence Road Wednesday, and causing traffic problems.

    Deputies "pulled over" the tortoise and placed him in the rear of their patrol vehicle.

    Deputies decided not to take the tortoise to jail, instead opting to deliver the animal to Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter.
