HOUSTON (AP) - A cow statue decorated with a Southwestern theme has been found after it was swiped from outside the Children’s Museum of Houston.

Museum officials say a Facebook tip led them to the missing cow, hidden in a drainage pipe at a construction site near the University of Houston. It was found several hours after workers discovered the statue missing from the museum.

The brightly colored Border Bovine sculpture features images of mountains, the Rio Grande, a longhorn’s skull and cactus. The piece was bolted down next to another cow state that wasn’t taken.

The decorated statues were part of a 2001 Houston arts effort called Cow Parade.
