FRANKLIN COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – The hunt is on for the last of two gray wolves that escaped from their enclosure at the licensed owner’s home in Franklin County last Sunday.

Saturday the wolf was spotted about a mile from its owner’s home, near Robertsville. The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office says they think wolf killed an 11-year-old Boston Terrier named Darla Friday night.

The wolf is about 100 to 150 pounds and is normally not aggressive.

If you see the wolf, call the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.

    More victims and bloodshed because some mental midget HAD to have a wolf and couldn’t control it.Wolves are NOT pets. This lousy, ignorant, irresponsible “owner” should be sued and jailed.All this pain and suffering because of one person’s selfishness and irresponsibility.I would tear up their class 2 permit and remind them that they are not fit to even own a goldfish.Next time they want a pet, let them get a picture, statue, or sketch of a pet, because they are obviously too clueless and irresponsible to have a living, breathing animal.The worst part is, the community has to suffer because of this one selfish, irresponsible idiot.Isn’t that the liberal way?

    The dog owners own some responsibility as well. You don’t let little dogs OR children out unattended!!
