    A turtle found wandering around a busy New York City bus terminal has been reunited with its grateful but sleepy owner.

    A bus dispatcher summoned police Sunday after the rambling reptile was found on a roadway inside the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey terminal, according to spokesman Joe Pentangelo.

    The turtle had spent about a half-hour at the police desk when a clue emerged: a man holding a second turtle.

    He told police that he'd fallen asleep, and the turtles had climbed out of his shoulder bag and went exploring.
