Who would bird-nap a beautiful creature like Rufus?!?!
The beloved Wimbledon harrier hawk was reported missing late last week, but now Rufus is back home without a scratch on him.
Rufus was taken from his owner's car in his cage and he was handed over to the RSPCA animal hospital, where he was reunited with his family.
Harrier hawks are used to scare pigeons at the All England club during Wimbledon, staring in 1999. The hawks are flown before and after the day's events.
Rufus will rest a couple days and then return to his duties later this week!
