AURORA, Colorado. – A Colorado family that tried to take her pet back from animal control officers, says DNA tests show that the dog is not a wolf hybrid.
Aurora Animal Control picked up the Abbato pet last month after he escaped from the garden. Officials classified the animal, the name of Capone, as part wolf, and refused to return with him to the family.
But Tracy Abbato told Denver station KDVR-TV that tests showed that their pet is no wolf in him.
The animal is held for weeks and will have to wait at least a few days longer before going home. A court in the case is scheduled for Wednesday.
