An update to a story that gained national attention this week.
All 96 turtles that spilled onto a local freeway have been adopted.
The turtles were in the hands of local rescuers after toppling from a truck Tuesday evening on Highway 58.
The Kern County Turtle and Tortoise Club believes the turtles, a species known as red-earred sliders, which are non-native to California, were probably headed to a Bay Area restaurant.
Leonard Plunkett, who was caring for the turtles, says he has been inundated with calls. He adopted out the last of the turtles Thursday night.
