I like the different strategies websites are using to pad out their articles about the escaped wolf being recaptured

They have no information other than a wolf "escaped" and was recaptured at the zoo, but have to pump up that word count.

WaPo reposting the AP:

The zoo’s website says the Mexican gray wolf, canis lupus baileyi, is the smallest of the gray wolf subspecies, 54 to 66 inches (137 to 167 centimeters) in length from snout to tail and weighing 50 to 90 pounds (22 to 40 kilograms). Their coat is a varied mixture of tan, red, white, and black fur, with darker colors on their head, shoulders and back.

Cleveland 19:

The Zoo’s wolves, Catori, Sarita, Una, Aprecia, Nancita and Mitzi, are all sisters. They came to Cleveland from the Wild Canid Survival and Research Center in Missouri in 2009.

The Wolf Lodge is also home to the Zoo’s bald eagle, beaver and several species of North American fish.
