AURORA DOG IS NOT A WOLF, DNA TEST SAYS
Tracy Abbato said DNA results show her dog Capone is not part wolf, as Aurora Animal Control suspected.
“The results came back negative. Not an ounce of wolf,” Abbato told Denver7.
Aurora city spokesman Michael Bryant said he couldn’t comment because it’s an ongoing legal case. Capone will remain at the Aurora Animal Shelter until a court can determine whether he goes home.
The dog’s owners were charged with keeping a wild, exotic or dangerous animal, which was related to suspicion the dog was a wolf hybrid. They also face charges of keeping an aggressive or dangerous animal, allowing him to roam at large, failure to obtain an animal license and failing to make sure the dog had a rabies vaccine. Tito Serrano, who co-owns the dog with Abbato, has pleaded not guilty, Bryant said.
