Wanda Wanders No Longer
After the persistent efforts of her owner Forest Peaslee, Jr., and the woodlands skill of a tracker, Wanda was captured the morning of April 17 near the Waldoboro Driving Range at Orff's Corner. Wanda has been on the run since she escaped from Peaslee's Somerville farm on March 19. Now back at home on Peaslee's farm, Wanda has rejoined her herd, and apparently is in high spirits. "She was feeling well enough to charge one of my farm hands on Thursday morning," Peaslee said with a chuckle.
