A sizable reward is being offered for the safe return of a wolf hybrid who was stolen from an animal preserve in New York. Sometime between the afternoon of June 24 and the morning of June 25, the wolf hybrid, Nakita, was stolen from The Town of Brookhaven Ecology Site, Park & Animal Preserve.
Targeted by thieves?
There is speculation that the wolf hybrid may have been specifically targeted by thieves. NBC New York reports that three fences were cut in order to access the seven-year-old hybrid. It appears that whoever cut the fences knew where Nakita was kept, and how to reach her. It is unclear if Nakita was simply set free…of if someone took her.
Nakita was once kept (illegally) as someone’s pet. Her family turned her over to the animal preserve last year after she allegedly showed signs of aggression; the animal preserve has observed no signs of aggression in her since the time that she came to live there.
A $5,000 reward is being offered by the Suffolk SPCA. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the SCPD Fifth Squad detectives at 631-854-8552 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
