Police say a tortoise is missing from a Queens educational shelter.
Millennium, a 17-year-old African spurt tortoise, disappeared from the Alley Pond Environmental Center in Douglaston.
Shelter officials think he was swiped sometime between Sunday afternoon and Monday morning.
They say the fence of his enclosure was cut open, but believe the 95 pound tortoise was actually pushed over the fence by the alleged thieves.
Millennium is considered one of the center's most prized animals.
Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
