Lawton Animal Welfare captures "Wolf Dog"

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Lawton Animal Welfare managed to catch the so-called "wolf dog" that had been roaming the streets of Lawton for months.

The dog is a mix between a regular dog and a wolf and is actually illegal to own in Lawton.

Lawton Animal Welfare says the dog was one of two "wolf dogs" that have been spotted in Lawton over the last few months.

After capturing the dog, Animal Welfare cared for it before turning it over to a specialized organization called "Wolf Dog Rescue."

A plan is already in place to capture the second "wolf dog," and officials urge anyone who sees the animal before it is captured to just stay away.
