On September 23, the Edmonson Voice received a message from Mrs. Bonnie Jaggers, a resident of E. Hack Road in Brownsville, who said her 20lb pet tortoise "Yaga," had gone missing from their home. She asked us to help get the word out so we posted the info on our Facebook page as we've done many times for our readers with missing pets.
The post was shared over 230 times and reached over 14,000 people.
Earlier today, Mrs. Jaggers contacted us and let us know that Yaga had been safely returned and wanted to thank us and our readers. Below is Mrs. Jaggers' message.
To the Edmonson Voice:
Hello, I just wanted to thank you for sharing the story about our missing tortoise. After being missing for over a week she has been found safe and returned home, thanks to you posting the story and people sharing. Thank you so much!
