Abandoned wolf hybrids settle in at Austin Zoo

Two members of a family of wolf hybrids abandoned after Hurricane Ike in October arrived at the Austin Zoo in West Travis County Thursday night.

The wolves are a mix between a wolf and a domestic dog and were bred at a ranch in Orange County, Texas near Beaumont.

The animals spent some time checking out their new digs after their arrival. The zoo says it was important to keep the family together.

"They are very bonded, very loyal animals. They grow up next to each other and they spend their whole lives together in those packs," said Sara King, Austin Zoo.

The Austin Zoo already has a 14-year-old hybrid wolf.
