A dog mistaken for a coyote was released into the wild by a Kentucky Animal shelter.Â The problem? It was someoneâ€™s pet! The authorities had to find a couple who realized that the shelter mistaken their dog for a coyote.Â
The 11 year old registered Shiba Ibu disappeared from its ownerâ€™s home on July 3, 2010.Â A cop responded to one of the many posters put out in the area, as he took the dog to the shelter. That is how they found out that it was mistaken for a coyote.
The shelter stands by its decision to release the animal in to the wild, as if it truly were a wild animal it would be illegal to house it. Not to mention the fact that it could have harmed the other animals at the shelter had it truly been wild.
Take a look at the included picture.Â Does the dog look like a coyote to you? To me, it really doesnâ€™t but I could be biased because I read the story before I saw a photo of the dog.
