Published 11:26pm Friday, January 31, 2014

Despite finding the tracks of their lost cow near White Marsh Road, Nichole and Brian Stewart still haven’t been able to locate the 3-year-old Guernsey that escaped shortly after arriving at their farm on Saturday.

After walking in the snow all day on Wednesday, Brian Stewart found the tracks on White Marsh Road near Badger Road just before sunset.

Mona Lisa went missing from a Hosier Road farm soon after her arrival there on Saturday. Her new owner says she is pregnant and likely to be scared.

However, he was unable to follow the tracks in the dark and had to come home for the night. He went out again on Thursday and tried to follow the tracks, but they crossed several deer and dog tracks, and he was unable to pick up the trail again, Nichole Stewart said.

The pregnant cow, named Mona Lisa, escaped from her new home on Hosier Road shortly after arriving on Saturday. She broke through the fence at the Stewarts’ Brown Chicken Brown Cow Farm.

“(I’m) feeling so discouraged and worried about her in this cold with no food or water,” Nichole Stewart said, noting that a cattle farmer they spoke with also mentioned seeing a cougar in the area. “I just don’t know what else we can do. I keep hoping by some miracle she will just turn up here. I leave the gate to the yard open at night with grain and hay and water, just in case she comes home.”

The farm’s Facebook page is being updated with information on the search for Mona Lisa. It is at www.facebook.com/BCBCVA. If you know the whereabouts of Mona Lisa, call 270-0216.
