Wolf pet escapes from Thurston County home

UPDATE, 1:48 P.M.:

The Thurston County Sheriff’s Office says a wolf hybrid that escaped from its owner’s kennel Friday near Lacey and attacked his German shepherd has been tranquilized and returned to its kennel.

Lt. Greg Elwin said deputies were prepared to shoot the 140-pound animal if it got out of a neighbor’s fenced yard.

He said the owner used raw meat to lure it into a portable kennel. The wolf hybrid was trying to chew its way out of the portable kennel when a Fish and Wildlife agent arrived and shot it with a tranquilizer gun.

Elwin said the animal is legal because it’s a hybrid, although it was described as 98 percent wolf.

The German shepherd that was attacked is OK.
