PERRY COUNTY - The testing of an animal with wolf-like characteristics to determine its makeup had not been done as of Thursday afternoon.

Conservation Officer Joe Lackey, quoted in a May 19 News story about an attack on a family dog, said Thursday he was still awaiting results of testing on the animal. He provided the number of Indiana Department of Natural Resources biologist Jeff Thompson, who said, also Thursday, he was awaiting an Indiana State University professor who would perform the testing. The animal is thought to be one of several that surrounded and attacked a dog belonging to a family living near Gatchel.
