Officials have removed a half-dozen red foxes, three coyotes and other animals from an unlicensed rehabilitation center in Michigan where the owner’s 2-year-old granddaughter lost an arm after reaching into a pen with two wolf-dog hybrids.
State conservation officers searching the Howling Timbers facility Friday in Muskegon also found 47 dogs that are believed to have been crossbred with wolves or other wolf-dog hybrids.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources said it learned in August that a girl had been bitten in July after putting her arm into a cage.
The agency revoked owner Brenda Pearson’s wildlife rehabilitation permit in 2010.
