Sadly no

When you say last seen in the Square at around 3pm, i guess that's quite a wide area for a tortoise, can you be more specific, I doubt he crossed the road or there'd have been a traffic jam someone would have seen something. Hope you find the little guy, probably under some leaves or something, maybe got trapped in one of the building sites?

Really appreciate your input. Thank you.

We live at Nr 14, The Square, the house with the huge wisteria on the front. Sadly the gate was left open and she wandered out. The photo posted of her was taken in front of the old Inwood Stoves shop.

We have looked everywhere, and put 60 posters up round the village. We will of course keep looking, as you say they are great at hiding.

She is greatly missed. Belong to my grand children. We also have her sister, the two of them have never been parted.

how big is the tortoise

Re: Lost tortoise in the square
- Karin (24th Jun 2020  13:10:00)

Sue is about the size of an adults hand. Her shell is quite pronounced. She is very friendly, used to a lot of handling.

I have now posted a picture on Liphook Community Board on Facebook.

I'll keep my eyes open too - Hope you find tortoise

Chiltlee Manor has an overgrown composting and garden waste area close to the road-that would be a good hiding place.

Hi if you don't find it and decide you want another one please let me know as I have 2 and both girls and don't get on that well together

Re: Lost tortoise in the square
- Diane (26th Jun 2020  10:34:20)

It is so hot at the moment and she may well have hunkered down somewhere cool. They do dig in. She will start moving again when the weather cools down but keep looking .good luck hope you find her.

Rob we would gladly rehome one of your Tortoises if need be.

Re: Lost tortoise in the square
- Karin (27th Jun 2020  07:29:24)

Hi Rob, that is so very kind of you to offer one of your tortoises. We are not in a space at the moment to think about replacing Sue. We still hope and pray we will find her. But thank you for your very kind though. Karin

Re: Lost tortoise in the square
- Tash (27th Jun 2020  16:02:47)

We have also been keeping an eye out when we go out . Fingers x you find her soon .

Re: Lost tortoise in the square
- Rachel (28th Jun 2020  16:15:22)

I am so sorry Sue has gone "walkabout."
You will be surprised at how far a Tortoise can travel! They can cover quite some ground and she maybe further away than anticipated.
I really really hope Sue is found very soon, safe and well and no worse for her summer adventure xxx

Re: Lost tortoise in the square

REWARD of ÂŁ50 to anybody who finds Sue the tortoise.

Re: Lost tortoise in the square
- Rachel (18th Jul 2020  20:40:18)

Any news on Sue?
I had a dream last night that I found her next to the Millennium center!
Please let us know if she's been found xxx

Re: Lost tortoise in the square
- Karin lauritzen (20th Jul 2020  08:56:23)

Hi Rachel, sadly no news of Sue the tortoise. We keep looking and hoping.

I will differently post when we find her.

Thank you for your concerns. Karin

Thank you for posting this Wendy. We have contacted the Vet in Horndean, but sadly it was not our Sue. Karin

Hiya
There’s been a tortoise found in Liss forest...
Don’t know if it might’ve travelled THAT far though?

Re: Lost tortoise in the square
- Penny Williamson (25th Jul 2020  09:22:38)

We had a tortoise years ago and it is amazing how far and fast they can travel and when the weather is warm they are very active. I hope Sue is found soon.

Re: Lost tortoise in the square
- Karin (25th Jul 2020  09:23:00)

Hi Em, where do you have this information from please? Who do we contact? Did you see a poster somewhere?

Re: Lost tortoise in the square
- Wendy (25th Jul 2020  11:34:19)

It's on Liss Forest community Facebook page

Re: Lost tortoise in the square
- Karin (25th Jul 2020  18:41:22)
