BROKEN ARROW, Okla. —
- Residents near 51st and Lynn Lane say they saw a wolf
- Neighbors worry about child and pet safety
- Wildlife Diversity Biologists say it’s likely a wolf/dog hybrid
- They say it likely got away from its owner or was dumped
People told FOX23 they thought it was a grey wolf.
Wildlife Diversity Biologists told FOX23 the wolf was likely not 100 percent wolf, but a wolf/dog hybrid. Those animals are exempt from wildlife statutes because they are not full wolves. They said it is likely a hybrid animal got away from its owner or was dumped by an owner who did not want it anymore.
