SANIBEL, Fla. — A gopher tortoise was released into the wild after suffering a shell fracture in March, according to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc. (CROW).

The adult female gopher tortoise was released back into the Sanibel area near where she was found by CROW officials.

The tortoise spent approximately 35 days in CROW’s care to repair her fractured shell.

CROW warned drivers to stop, if it is safe to do so, if they spot a gopher tortoise crossing the road and to be aware of any speed warning signs with wildlife in the area.
