A school tortoise that went missing last week was found 22 miles away at a golf course in Burbank, California, KCBS-TV reported Sunday.

Bubba, the 140-pound tortoise somehow made her way out of his habitat at Paul Revere Middle School in Pacific Palisades, California, the television station continued.

Craig Honda, a science teacher at Pacific Palisades and Bubba's caretaker, told KNBC-TV that students saw someone take Bubba, put her in a white truck and take off on Sunset Boulevard.

"She was a huge part of lives here at school," Honda told KNBC-TV. "She was so gentle with everyone who met her. The kids just love her."

The tortoise, along with frogs, chickens and goats makes up the middle school's farm program, KNBC-TV stated.

"They grew up with her and see her as their mom," Honda said, according to KNBC-TV. "It would mean the world to have Bubba back safely. She brings the school a whole new light and spirit."

KCBS-TV said the tortoise was found days later at the DeBelle Golf Club in Burbank. The club posted a video of Bubba on its Facebook page Friday.

Bubba was not the first tortoise found on a golf course this year. In England, a tortoise was spotted by golfers at Burhill Golf Club in July, Essential Surrey and Southwest London reported.

"This fella must have wandered a long way to end up on the grounds of this golf course," an inspector of the Joanne Bowling, Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, told Essential Surrey.

"Sadly he wasn't microchipped and we have put his details on the Pets Located website in the hope his owner might come forward. We believe he is aged between eight and 10 years old," Bowling continued.
