A Vancouver Island group that is focused on reuniting owners with their lost four-legged family members is currently trying to catch a supposed wolf-dog near Nanaimo, B.C.

He appears to be half dog, half wolf and has become quite the escape artist.

The Find Lost and Escaped Dogs (FLED) group is working to try and safely trap the wolf-dog. They learned about the animal through a resident, who has wolf-dogs herself. She had tried to catch the loose animal with her live trap but a small bear was caught instead, and broke the trap.

The dog has been dubbed WD-40 by rescuers, WD for wolf-dog and 40 for oil, as the animal is quite “slippery” to catch. Global’s Alissa Thibault reports.
