An Ohio County animal shelter is still trying to round up the remaining wolf-dogs running around a home in Fordsville, Kentucky.

Rescue workers say there could still be as many as 10 wolf-hybrids left on the property where their owner, Patricia Ritz, is believed to have died.

Neighbors say Ritz ran a wolf sanctuary.

Saturday morning, animal control officers were called to round up the animals once human remains were found.

A medical examiner is still working to identify them, but officials tell us Ritz may have died of natural causes and then her dogs apparently ate part of her body.

The animal shelter welcomes donations to help feed, clean and get these dogs medical treatement.
