Dog? Wolf? Canine in custody until answer found

“Her owner says the animal isn’t a wolf, but the police aren’t so sure. A Des Moines ordinance says wolves can’t be pets. Scrappy was released on a probation of sorts Thursday pending a determination of whether the animal is a dog, wolf or wolf dog. The animal has been in custody since April 29, when she was picked up after running loose.”
