2 cows, calf on loose in Loudoun Co.

WASHINGTON — Two cows and a calf are still on the loose after they got free from their farm in Loudoun County, Virginia, on Monday.

Mark Stacks, of Loudoun County Animal Control, said that three cows and the calf were on a pasture at Rock Spring Farm, off Dry Mill Road, in Leesburg, when they got free through an open back gate Monday afternoon and headed toward County Club Drive. Animal Control, and the cows’ owner, found one of the cows and confined her in a field off Dry Mill Road, but the rest haven’t been found.

Stacks said that they’re in a heavily wooded area, and “we don’t know where they are.” The owner and a few farmhands are still out looking for the livestock, but Animal Control is waiting for calls from people who have seen them.

If you see them, Stacks asked, call Animal Control at 703-777-0406.
