Be on the lookout for Bob, the Red-Eared Turtle

Missing turtle

Kevin McCrea (yes, that Kevin McCrea) reports:

Sometime last night or early this morning my 2 year pet red eared slider who answers to "Bob" was taken from the fountain in front of my house at 218 West Springfield. A great favorite of the kids in the neighborhood, they are already worrying about him.

McCrea implores whoever took Bob to just bring him back - no questions asked.

In the photo, Bob is the smaller turtle on the left. McCrea adds his fountain mate, also named Bob, seems forlorn now.

the plastic turtle...

Yes, Bob did seem to have some sort of unholy attraction to that hole-less plastic turtle.

Thanks for the kind words and the gentleman who offered to replace him. Makes me feel better about mankind.

What about Bob?

I saw a man carrying a turtle like this across the crosswalk while I was stopped at a light on the Jamaicaway. He was heading straight to the pond. I assume and still assume he had found a wayward turtle and was returning it to its natural habitat.

It's a bit far removed from the South End. In case it's connected though: He looked in his 50s, white goatee, glasses, and was wearing a green shirt or jacket. It was almost 9am today that I saw this man with a random turtle.
