PORTLAND – Hornswaggle the tortoise went missing from the front yard of a North Portland home and her owner was desperate to get her back. She was happily recovered Sunday evening.
On Thursday afternoon, Hornswaggle was outside in her pen enjoying the nice weather. But when her owner, 28-year-old Tierney Campbell, got home from work, the tortoise was gone.
When Hornswaggle is not outside, she generally gets free reign at the home where Campbell lives with her boyfriend near North Rosa Parks Way and Interstate Avenue. On nice days Hornswaggle’s goes outside to a sturdy pen in the front yard.
After being lost for three days, Hornswaggle was recovered and returned Sunday evening.
