Funny or close call story: "While on a service call, I once found a 45 lb. tortoise in the middle of an intersection! Turns out the tortoise’s name was Lance and he had escaped from his home in Lombard. It was the same tortoise that was on the news a few years earlier because he had escaped and his owners were looking for him. Turns out he was picked up by a visitor to Lombard who thought he was wild and brought him home to St. Charles, but returned him when seeing the story. I was able to get him back to his owners safely."
