American Werewolf In Brooklyn?

We are living in wild times. An illegal wolf-dog hybrid has been found roaming the streets of New York. In a scene reminiscent of post-apocalyptic science-fiction films, police found the 53-pound, three-year-old female in Brooklyn, New York Animal Care and Control said. The cross-breed was found wandering near Elton Street and Vandalia Avenue in East New York… Wolf-dog hybrids are considered exotic animals and are illegal to keep as pets in New York. Despite being dangerous they are growing in popularity as a pet, with puppies widely available on the internet. There are estimated to be between 300,000 and 500,000 in North America and 1,500 federally regulated pure wolves living in captivity. Hybrid wolf-dogs often suffer behavioral problems and are not well suited to becoming pets, so sadly many end up living chained up in yards, abandoned or put down.” w/ photos

A 45-year-old Kannapolis man was arrested after police said he hid nearly $300 worth of smoked turkey, shrimp, ribeye steak and baby-back ribs in his pants.
