Frisco, Texas (Custer/Rolater)
Adopted from FWACC: 10/08/2023
Missing from new home: 10/14/2023
Case acceptance date: 10/17/2023
Maisie’s family recently adopted her from the Fort Worth Shelter. After only one week in her new home, Maisie escaped from her yard.
Once she escaped she became extremely elusive to humans, making her improbable to hand capture. Our specialized team is needed to capture her.
If you see Maisie, DO NOT APPROACH her. She will RUN! Simply call or text the number on the flyer and report the location and direction of travel. Also please DO NOT FEED her. We need for her to only eat at our feeding station.
Our team put boots on the ground on site of the recent sightings tonight and we are conducting a thermal aerial search of the vast Rowlett Creek and surrounding areas. Once we locate her will deploy a video monitored feeding station in an undisclosed area nearby in hopes of luring Maisie to the station where we will capture her using our large corral trap. Please check this page often for any pertinent updates.
We located Maisie during our aerial thermal search early this morning. She was bedded down in a tree line along Rowlett Creek. Click the link below to watch our LIVE video via Facebook. Towards the end of the video you can see her come out of the trees and walk towards us.
Moments later we deployed a video monitored feeding station in the den location we found her in. Now we wait for her to visit the station.
It didn’t take her long to visit the feeding station and she ate all of the food! Now we will deploy our large corral trap in the area later this afternoon.
We deployed our large corral trap in a 10’ x 10’ configuration, baited it, and it is armed. Our team is now staged on site for capture, indefinitely. Please check our Facebook page as we plan to broadcast live the entire time we are staged.
Our Team stayed on site overnight Wednesday night and all day today staging for capture but Maisie hasn’t yet showed up to the corral. There were multiple sightings of her this morning and this evening but tragically there were people who didn’t know any better trying to hand capture her and she was spooked away from the immediate area.
Our Team has been on site for 41 straight hours so we are going to leave the site, take showers and sleep for 3 hours. We will be back on site at 05:00 tomorrow morning. For now we will disarm the corral and lock the door open and we will re-arm it in just a few hours when we return.
We will continue to broadcast LIVE on Facebook when we are on site so be sure to turn on notifications for our Facebook page!
We arrived back on site early this morning. We rearmed the corral and we will be staging for capture indefinitely. There were zero sightings of Maisie overnight.
She has yet to visit the corral and corral creek area so we are confident that she is avoiding the conflict of wildlife after dark. Good Samaritans, who did not know any better had chased her near the area of the corral so we do not believe she will return to that location anymore even during the day.
♥️ We finally had 2 new sightings of Maisie this evening. We added the location details to our case map and after studying the map in great detail we feel strongly that she is trying to make her way back home. Our case map has now showed us that even though there have been zero sightings near her home, her travels are all connected to a route that intersects confusion for her. We saw that she consistently traveled past these two alley branches and she likely didn’t know which way to turn… we are going to help guide her by setting up a feeding station near her home with a very long liquid smoke trail from one of her passing areas at Rowlett Creek all the way to the feeding station!
She visited the new feeding station this morning! We are preparing for capture.
We relocated the corral trap to our new location and we had to use a smaller configuration (5’x10’) in order for it to fit in the new location. We will lock the door open for now and we will be back this evening at dusk to stage for capture!
Our team just arrived on site, armed the trap, put out fresh brisket in the corral bowl and we will be staging for capture I definitely. We are broadcasting LIVE on Facebook right now so join us!

The very next morning Hudson found out that Maisie was home safe and sound! Look at how precious the video is!
