OLYMPIA WA - A 3-YEAR-OLD BOY HAD TO HAVE ONE OF HIS ARMS AMPUTATED AFTER PUTTING HIS HAND INTO A KENNEL WHERE AN ANIMAL THAT IS EITHER A WOLF OR A WOLF HYBRID WAS BEING KEPT

A 3-year-old boy was attacked Monday when he put his hand into a kennel containing two hybrid wolves, the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office said. His injuries resulted in one of his arms being amputated.
“The child had sustained serious injury to one of his hands and forearm. The child was a resident at this home where two wolf hybrids were maintained by the family within fenced kennel,” the sheriff’s office told Q13 News.
The boy was flown to Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center for treatment. A nursing supervisor said Monday night that the boy was in stable condition after undergoing a “traumatic arm amputation.”
The sheriff's office said the preliminary investigation showed that the mother was inside the house in the 7000 block of Meridian Road SE when, unknown to her, the child wandered outside and "stuck his hand into the kennel and was attacked by at least one of the wolf hybrids."
Thurston County Animal Control and Washington State Fish and Wildlife were called in to "secure the animals per their protocol for further investigation," the sheriff's office said.
The mother, the owner of the wolf hybrids, was cooperating with investigators, the sheriff's office said.

The parents are breeding them. Another news outlet has that information http://ktla.com/2017/04/04/boy-loses-arm-after-being-mauled-by-familys-wolf-hybrids/ A few years ago a pure wolf was removed from the property. I wish the boy had been removed for his safety. Why breed animals like this? And for God's sake why have them on the property with a small child? Evil.

I guess owning a regular dog just isn't cool, smart, or safe anymore. Ya gotta have a dangerous animal so people will think highly of you.

Fail! I think people that have wolves, or wolf hybrids are IDIOTS!

Truly, they could have saved themselves some legal troubles by just having a pair of pit bulls. It's totally legal AND acceptable to have them maul family members!

Dayna,

I feel terrible for laughing, but you are funny and so right! It's also perfectly legal to backyard breed your pit bull maulers. If there's a backyard accident, like your child, mother, neighbor, or mailman get mauled to death, you can get away with murder!

It's a total win/win!
