Troopers say the roadside attraction, north of Palmer, recently billed itself online as home of “the largest wolfpack” in the state, even though it’s illegal to possess wolves in Alaska without a state permit. The business holds no such permit, officials say.

Dog-wolf hybrids are illegal as pets under any circumstances.

Troopers say they also are investigating reports of attacks on kids and pets by wolf hybrids thought to have been born at Wolf Country USA.
