A turtle found wandering around a busy New York City bus terminal has been reunited with its grateful but sleepy owner.
Two turtles escaped from a bag in the Port Authority Bus Terminal after their owner fell asleep on Sunday afternoon, police said.
A police officer found one near a parked bus after a dispatcher reported seeing the reptile in the roadway at around 1:30pm, Port Authority spokesman Joe Pentangelo said.
Half-an-hour later, police then got word of a second turtle on the loose.
When they arrived at the spot where a witness saw it, the owner had already retrieved the reptile.
Police then returned the first escapee to the owner, who said the animals slipped out of a blue shoulder bag while he dozed off.
Officers don't know where the man was from or where he was heading.
