Reunited – tortoises Kyle and Jack

First published in News

A TORTOISE who went on hunger strike is eating again after being reunited with his runaway brother!

The Weekly News last week reported two-year-old Kyle was devastated as he pined for his brother Jack, who went missing two weeks ago.

But Jack, also two, has now been found after burying himself in his owner’s garden.

And with the pair blissfully reunited, Kyle tucked straight back into his first meal in nearly a fortnight.

Mandy Micra-Marciano, of Tavistock Road, Springfield, found the runaway reptile.

She explained: “Jacke wasn’t at all happy to be disturbed, but Kyle is eating again after almost two weeks of refusing to eat.”
