After days without any sightings of a lost 70-pound goldendoodle at Yellowstone National Park and hopes dimming for her safe return, Delta was found! On Thursday morning, Delta, who had been missing for 16 days, was captured and reunited with her owner.
The black goldendoodle escaped from her owner while visiting the park. According to the dog’s owner, Mike Matsis and a Facebook group, PeteThomasOutdoors, Delta, had been sighted near Artists Paintpots which is located south of the Norris Geyser Basin. The dog did not responded to people calling her nor had she paid any attention to park rangers trying to capture her.
“was recovered by her owners at the parking lot where she took off 16 days ago.”
There have not been many details released as to how Delta was captured, but let’s hope everyone with a pet will follow the park’s guidelines to prevent anymore episodes and endangering pets.
