LINDEN - Linden police say three hybrid wolves were caught in the Rahway area this afternoon, but the animals turned out to be someone's pets.

Two of the animals were caught in the vicinity of their owner's property. The third was eventually caught by authorities after making its way down Route 27 from Rahway into Linden.

The half-wolf, half-dog hybrids are not illegal to own, Linden police say.

There were no injuries.
