A puppy, picked up by campers in Ketchum last month, is a wild wolf. The Idaho Department of Fish and Game confirmed that Tuesday after a DNA test came back positive.
Out of town campers picked up what they thought was a lost puppy and took it to a vet. The pup ended up at Zoo Boise, who has been caring for it. He is gaining weight and his health is improving.
Fish and Game searched for a wolf pack near where the pup was found, but couldn’t find one. They speculate the pack was moving the puppy and may have been disturbed by traffic on the road.
