Morganfield police catch all 3 wolf hybrids
MORGANFIELD, Ky. (WFIE) - Animal Control Officers and Morganfield Police have spent the day on Thursday looking for some pet wolves that were on the loose.
They got out around 10 a.m. Wednesday from a home in the 800 block of North Morgan.
The Morganfield Police Department says all three wolf/dog hybrids have been found and caught.
Police Chief Deibler says David Mills owns the wolf/dog hybrids.
He also says they are on the vicious dog list, and Mills is not allowed to have them.
So far, Mills has been charged with three counts of harboring a vicious animal and three counts of allowing a vicious animal to run at large. Chief Deibler says more charges could be added.
Police say the wolf hybrids are named Willenna, Yoki and Akasha.
Around 2:45 p.m. Wednesday, police could be heard calling for the dogs after a possible sighting. Around 3 p.m., they were able to capture two of them on Hite School Road.
The community was able to help search for the animals along with police and animal control to find them.
Mills says he’s kept them since they were pups, and that they escaped his backyard Wednesday morning.
He says he wasn’t going to stop looking until they were all found.
“All over. Literally all over,” said Mills. “Beanfields, cornfields, taking rural roads along with Union County Animal Control and Morganfield Police Department as well.”
