from their irresponsibe owner. Do not eunthenize them though. Find them "suitable" homes. It is not their fault. It is the fault of their irresponsible owner who should be heavily fined.

I would rather pay them to find
wondering dogs than to look for
people who say they are abducted when
their not.

They are now worse than the pit bulls that run around my area - the oweners should be held accountable - the animals are not at fault. Owners that have potientially dangerous animals should be responsible adults and make sure they are in a secure area. These wolf dogs need a better home before someone takes it out on them the poor judgement of their owner.

I'm glad this is the top story rather than Reading moving up the list of "Dangerous Cities."
Did anyone ever think that maybe someone might have messed with the fenced in area in order to get the owner in trouble?
Glad to see people jumping to conclusions...

This story is uncalled for. This is not the first incident and will not be the last unless something is done.

There is a fault in the enclosure for these 15 animals and it needs to be corrected.

If the owner lets me know how to contact him and is willing to follow my directions for proper penning, it won't happen again. The solution is simple, low cost and fast.... There's no need to ban the dogs or punish the animals or owner.

This is totally ridiculous now. Fine the owner and either make him secure the area that the wolves are kept in or make him get rid of them. Why should the taxpayers be paying the cops to play these games.

I agree with you on this one. I say it is the one neighbor WHO wants them gone. I say he is going over there at night and letting them out. Just so he can have his way and have them removed. Apparantly he is from the city and thinks the country life doesn't have animals in the area. He must miss the concrete pavements. If he misses it that much, he should move back to the city.

wow the one on the left is gorgeous! nice looking dogs, its a shame though the owner doesnt make an escape proof habitat for them.
If they are digging under then he/she needs to have the fence go underground as well to a certain point to prevent digging and escaping..its not something that is impossible to do.

the wolf-hybrid dog owner shows us that he has 100% total disregard for his animals,the children in the township and the tax payers. he has said and i quote " please take your children inside because i do not know what my wolf-hybrids are capable of when they are outside the enclosure." there is a reason why so many states ban this breed of "dog". as for the comment of "city people" being the ones fueling the anti wolf-hybrid setiments, that is un-true. I personally have lived in this area for 39 years, grew up on a local family farm and now raising my family on spring garden rd.. When you have certain types of animals you have to provide adequate enclosures to keep them in and secured. To me the owner,"cliff", is a very ignorant human being. One safety concern that i have is that these wolf-hybrids do not, i repeat DO NOT have rabies shots. This is because the rabies shot will not take to a wolf-hybrid. Do the research and see for yourselves. No one wants to see anyones animals banned but this nonsense has to stop. I pay almost 11,000.00 dollars a year in property taxes in holland township. I should not have to worry about a wolf-hybrid on the loose with my children playing outside. Last, how does "cliff" get homeowners insurance with these wolf-hybrids on his property? When i applied for my homeowners insurance, i had to list all of the dogs that i owned by breed and weight. Mine are labs by the way.(very vicious breed) lol. In the best interest of the residents and the wolf-hybrids, something has to happen and SOON! Are you listening "cliff"?.........

This is a damn shame... There are kids most likely in this area... And these dogs could attack them or a elder person...

All of Cliff's dogs have had their rabies shots!

Wanted to share this document, dated October 5, 2009, from Faye Sorhage, VMD, the current New Jersey State Public Health Veterinarian, regarding the efficacy of the rabies vaccination in wolfdogs. The document, in email form, provides a professional opinion regarding the use of the current rabies vaccine in wolfdogs. It can be obtained by contacting the state vet.

Specifically it states "In my capacity as the NJ State Public Health Veterinarian overseeing NJ's rabies control program and as a committee member on the National Association of State Public Health Veterinarian Compendium of Rabies Control and Prevention in Animals, it is my professional evaluation that the rabies vaccines licensed for use in dogs are highly likely to be efficacious for use in wolf dog hybrids, and I am in support of vaccinating them with such vaccines to protect both the animals in questions, as well as public health"

Seriously, they need to indicate if the wolfdogs are dangerous. However, I can't see them being dangerous unless they have rabies.
