Family seeking solutions right after 9-yr-aged boy’s tortoise goes missing from Roseville pet retailer

ROSEVILLE, Mich. – Wonderful Lakes Reptile in Roseville was looking at two of the Crowe family’s pet tortoises, Chip and Dale.

On the other hand, Chip went lacking and a 9-12 months-previous boy is thinking what happened to him.

“They meant a good deal to me,” explained Drew Collett.

Drew has experienced the tortoises for two yrs since they were hatchlings, and Chip is the a single with all of the individuality.

“I was truly connected to the a person that was missing… It is just been truly frustrated for the very last couple times,” he said.

Drew’s mother Connie Crowe explained she obtained a wild rationalization from an employee of the keep.

“They blamed it on 1 of the managers, who I guess relapsed on drugs. And she thinks that he marketed him for drug money, basically. But it’s feasible any individual stole him or that he acquired out. They have no plan what took place to him. He’s just long gone,” she stated.

But the operator reported, “Well, which is not essentially legitimate. We really don’t genuinely know what occurred.”


He claimed it is probable that the tortoise was stolen and provided to change it.

“He may just be a tortoise to some individuals, but to us, he was a pet and it’s so challenging just not figuring out what occurred to them,” Crowe stated.

“Just the point that they could reduce a dwelling animal. It is not like animals just (vanish) into slim air,” Drew reported.
