    PETA wants to help find who spray-painted a mama pig and her piglets at a Maryland petting farm last week -- and to find the tortoise that was stolen.

    There is now a $3,000 reward, offered up by PETA, to get the stolen red-footed tortoise named Henrietta back to the farm as well as for any information about those responsible for vandalizing the pigs.

    "We implore the public to come forward with any tips regarding the whereabouts of Henrietta and the thieves who stole her," says PETA Director Martin Mersereau.

    The vandalism was discovered July 1, according to Ken Keyes with the Green Meadows Petting Farm in Ijamsville. 

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

    If you have any information on the tortoise's whereabouts or those involved in the case, call 301-600-4150.
