WICHITA MOUNTAINS WILDLIFE REFUGE, OK (KSWO) - Good news from the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.

The missing longhorn calf has been reunited with its mom. Deputy Refuge Manager Ralph Bryant snapped a picture through his spotting scope.

They suspected someone had taken the calf last week after tire tracks were found in the area when it had been last seen, and witnesses also confirmed seeing the calf in the back of a truck. The person who took it told refuge officials last week he had returned it, but visual confirmation didn't happen til Monday.

Bryant says there will be prosecution involved with the incident, but did not provide specifics Monday night.
