Police: Testing confirms dog was not a wolf hybrid
GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- A dog that bit a child last month in Green Bay was determined not to be a wolf hybrid, police say.
The dog was returned to its owner after a 10-day quarantine period.
The animal was tested for DNA after the owner's family member told police the dog was a wolf hybrid. The owner denied that claim, but police said they tested the dog to err on the side of caution.
Police say a citation issued to the dog's owner for keeping an exotic animal is expected to be dismissed. However, the owner was told to apply for a permit to keep more than two dogs per home, since he owns three dogs.
Police had said earlier, if the dog turned out to be wolf hybrid, it would be turned over to a licensed caretaker.
