Dog killed by suspected wolf hybrids
Roscommon County Animal Control confirmed Monday that a small dog was killed July 17 in the neighborhood of Dollena Avenue. The neighborhood is on the south shore of Houghton Lake.
Neighbors of the homeowners whose dog was killed told the Resorter the dog was a small white dog that was attacked by two large dogs, suspected of being wolf hybrids.
