Wolf recaptured after escaping from sanctuary

Wolf on the loose after escaping sanctuary

Officers have confirmed they sighted the wolf and are working with staff from the sanctuary to detain

A wolf which sparked a police search after escaping from a wildlife sanctuary in Berkshire has been captured.

Officers are advising members of the public not to approach the wolf if they see it.

One parent, Tony Roe, told the BBC police officers were outside his child's local primary school by 08:30 to usher pupils inside. They'll remember this day for the rest of their lives and will shit themselves when they see an Alsation for ever more.

Thames Valley Police texted residents in part of Berkshire, warning them about the escaped animal and children are being kept inside schools.

Update 2.50pm: A wolf which escaped after strong winds blew down a fence at a sanctuary near a school in England has been recaptured.

Officers were called at 8am on Thursday to the scene near the centre in Picklepythe Lane - which is just over three miles from the Duchess of Cambridge's family home in Bucklebury.

On the men's side, No. 10 Pablo Carreno Busta was leading 6-2, 3-0 when Gilles Simon retired from their second-round match. She will play in the third round against Angelique Kerber , the 2016 champion, who beat Donna Vekic 6-4, 6-1.

Sian Champkin, whose husband works at Elstree Independent Boys Preparatory School in nearby Woolhampton, said students were asked not to go outside.

But staff at the sanctuary said this afternoon that there were no breaches of the barriers.

"The sanctuary is about a mile away as the crow flies". The sanctuary has been there for years, we all support it and even the school kids have an emblem of a wolf on their jumpers.

The sanctuary was established in 1995, and homes 10 Arctic and northwestern wolves, living in four packs.

But the reasons behind how the wolf was able to escape remain a mystery.

The alarm was raised yesterday morning by a dog walker who spotted the animal in a woodland area near the UK Wolf Conservation Trust sanctuary at Beenham, near Reading.
