A reptile named 'Tank' has escaped from a vet's office in Pennsylvania


Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

A reptile named Tank has escaped from a vet's office in Andreas, Pa. He's not a threat to residents because Tank is a tortoise, and it's his third time on the loose. He belongs to a veterinarian who works at the clinic. And it seems Tank made a break for it after finding a hole in his fence pen. He's still on the run, but staff are hopeful they'll find him, because how fast can he really be going?
