GATCHEL - An animal thought to have been among several that attacked a Perry County family's dog was  not a wolf or wolf hybrid, according to an Indiana State University biologist.

"I boiled the skull last weekend and now have had time to examine it," John O. Whitaker Jr. wrote in an e-mail message to Jeff Thompson, wildlife biologist with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. "It is definitely dog; it was not a wolf, coyote or coydog."
