Officials from a California county reported that they have recovered two of the three wolf hybrids that escaped from their owner. One of the animals is still loose.

The owner of the animals said that they are around 8 months old and that they recently moved to the area. The owner also explained that the animals have not been socialized and could pose a threat to small pets.
