    A "mama" pig and her piglets from a Maryland petting farm were spray-painted Monday night, and a tortoise was stolen.

    According to Ken Keyes with the Green Meadows Petting Farm in Ijamsville, the vandalism was discovered Tuesday morning.

    The pigs were covered in purple spray-paint which spelled out "Urbana Rules," and Keyes said the likely perpetrators got away with their tortoise, Henrietta.

    Keyes said this is the first time his farm was vandalized. 

    If you have any information on Henrietta's whereabouts, Keyes said he would like you to contact him, at 301-748-4971.
