North Carolina: Authorities captured nine escaped wolf-dog hybrids

Officials in a North Carolina county say nine runaway wolf-dog hybrids have been apprehended in the area, with three more thought to be on the loose.

Orange County Animal Services, which disclosed in July that the canines, which are hybrids of wolves and German shepherd dogs, had escaped from a Cedar Grove-area cage, said nine of the animals had been captured and are being held at the shelter.

Another wolf dog has lately been spotted on the loose, while two others have not been seen in several weeks.

The hybrids are not allowed pets in North Carolina, according to animal services Tenille Fox, but officials are working to find them a new permanent home at a shelter or rescue.

“We are going above and beyond to try and achieve a positive outcome for them,” Fox told media.
