"Wolf or wolf hybrid" captured near greenway

Residents who love wildlife in the greenway were surprised when a wolf or hybrid was captured nearby on Thursday.

But don't worry--there's no evidence it has a den there.  Instead, it lives indoors just a few houses away, in the 200 block of Falles Ct.  The pet belongs to Greg Weber.

The pet was captured in the 500 block of nearby Charles Lane after escaping from Greg Weber's truck.

The animal control office and police were flooded with calls reporting a wolf.  Some people said it was howling.  When captured, the animal "seemed shy and responded to treats."  It wasn't aggressive.

Keeping a wolf or wolf hybrid is illegal in Madison, but the animal won't be tested, because it's complicated and expensive.

I guess this just confirms--that people living around the greenway... love wildlife.
