This is important to note, Dale said, because many of the complaints he has received are from residents who believe the dogs at this residence were the ones that attacked the horses on March 9.
Dale is asking area residents not to take matters into their own hands if they see something that looks like a dog/wolf hybrid.
“We’re asking people to be vigilant, but right now this seems like an isolated incident,” he said. “We’re asking that you not just shoot at dogs because you might think [a hybrid] is what it is. We’ve had people call in and say they’ve seen them, but until we have pictures or prints, we’re treating it as an isolated incident.”
