Hot Clicks: Dog in Republic survives attack by wolves

Posted: Updated:
REPUBLIC, Wash. -

A dog in Republic is lucky to be alive after getting attacked by wolves. Biscuit was outside while her owner, Bree Wirt-Hendrickson, was feeding her horses when Bree said she "heard Biscuit scream" in a manner that "sounded like she was dying."

Bree didn't think twice, she grabbed her shovel and ran after across the pasture only to see two wolves running away and one had her dog in his mouth. When she got about 50 feet away from the wolves, the wolf that had her dog in its mouth, dropped her and Biscuit went running back to the house. Bree immediately grabbed her kids and took her dog to the vet. Biscuit sustained 14 puncture wounds and will have to undergo surgery to repair a protruding stomach muscle. 

Biscuit has clearly been traumatized by the incident; she won't leave the porch to go outside unless Bree is by her side. Fish and Game have warned Bree that the wolves could be back, so Bree will no longer let her three little girls (ages 6,5, and 3) outside unless she is with them and carrying her gun. 

Bree says she's seen coyotes on her property before, but never wolves. When asked how she knew these were wolves she replied, "If they coyotes, they were coyotes on steroids. They were massive. Beautiful, a light gray in color... but huge." 

As for Biscuit, she is one lucky dog.
