Two baby lynx have been returned to a Wisconsin petting zoo.

This came after police released new surveillance video showing the moment they were snatched from Animal Gardens near Delavan. The owners said two women dropped them off.

Workers at the Animal Gardens petting zoo noticed the two 8-week-old Siberian lynx, Mowgli and Blue, were missing on the night of July 3. Surveillance video captured a black truck pulling off the grounds.

Police issued this stock image of what the truck looks like. This is not a picture of the truck used in the suspected theft.
