INDIAHOMA, Okla. (AP) -- An advocacy group for southwest Oklahoma's Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge is asking visitors to be vigilant looking out for vandals.

TV station KSWO reports spray-painted graffiti has shown up on trees in an area known as the Parallel Forest.

Friends of the Wichitas volunteer Robert Glass says he and others will use power washers and paint remover to clean pentagrams, upside down crosses and 6-6-6 drawings from the trees. Glass said the group will work as delicately to prevent further damage.

 he refuge is about 100 miles southwest of Oklahoma City. It is a popular for viewing bison, prairie dogs, river otters and elk.
