Animal Store Kenn Bearman is happy to welcome Spur back home.


Spur has been found and is back home safely here at The Animal Store. Our giant, 70-lb female Sulcata Tortoise was stolen when someone broke in very early Saturday morning, smashing the front door, avoiding our security cameras and taking only Spur.

An anonymous tip led to her return today with only a few minor dings. She’s a little freaked out and, as you can see in the picture above, reluctant to come out of her shell, but we think she will be just fine.

Thank you to the Chicago media for their efforts to get the word out to the community.

And thank you to all the friends of The Animal Store who shared our story on Facebook and Twitter. We really appreciate your efforts and concern.
