Anxious owner offers reward for return of ‘walking boulder’ By Melodie H. Magouirk The owner of a missing 100-pound tortoise hopes he hasn’t gotten far from home. Karen Singleton, a dog trainer, was out of town when her African Sulcata tortoise went missing from the fenced yard of her Chino home. Nitro, who is 20 years old, has been a pet of Mrs. Singleton for a year, adopted from the Chino Valley Chapter of the California Turtle and Tortoise Club. Before that he served as the mascot for Norco High School, living in the school’s agriculture complex. Sulcatas are known for their burrowing and destructive ways, but Mrs. Singleton said Nitro has accommodations in her yard, and did not dig. Her fear, she said, is that her pet was stolen. “A neighbor came over and said that Nitro is probably long gone, that he’s worth $2,000 on the black market,” Mrs. Singleton said. Lynda Misiak, secretary of the Chino Valley tortoise club, said theft is a possibility. “You see them for sale on Craig’s list, and people want something big and strange,” Mrs. Misiak said. “It would take more than one person to lift him.” Mrs. Misiak described Nitro as a walking boulder. Mrs. Singleton is offering a reward for the return of her pet, no questions asked. To contact Mrs. Singleton, call 821-2664 or 464-0393.
