Washington, DC - An disoriented pig-wolf hybrid was found roaming wild in the halls of Congress in the nations Capitol, authorities said Thursday.
Capitol police found the approximately seven hundred pound pig-wolf near the entrance where lobbyist normally enter the building on Tuesday evening, said Max Cash, spokesperson for Washington Animal Care and Control.
"He's not a wild animal," Cash told the Washington Gazette. "Nobody's come forward to claim him," he added, noting that it is not illegal to possess a pig-wolf in Washington.
The animal is staying at a swanky Georgetown hotel with other political hybrids, though he has his own suite. Cash said most pig-wolf hybrids are a cross between a ex-members of Congress and either a German shepherd, a malamute, or a husky, but without genetic testing they won't know for sure.
Authorities will try to place the animal, which was called Cheeky by the police who found him, with a political think tank experienced with handling such hybrids.
