Barbara Reed, who is studying events management at City College, saw the animals after delivering pizzas at the campus.
The 25-year-old said it was the weirdest call to the police she had made.
She said: “I first thought, gosh they are big dogs. Then I thought, they are wolves.
“Two other drivers saw them so we called the police and they said they had been called already.
“I have never seen a wolf but it was light and I had a good look.
“I slowed down because they crossed in front of my car. They had pointed ears and bushy tails. They were very large.”Pointed ears and bushy tails? Why, what else could they possibly be, but wolves?
When she arrived back at Domino’s on Colman Road, her two Hungarian colleagues reported the same sighting.
“One was waving his arms and being quite panicky about it,” she said.Not a lot of Alsatians in Hungary then? Because that’s what they were…
Police said they asked the first caller to phone Norwich City Council’s dog wardens.So the police didn’t think it likely they were wolves? Well, that’s reassuring. I suppose…
The second callers, the pizza drivers, were told by police the animals had been caught.
The council were phoned by a woman who said she had caught two Alsatians.A happy ending? Well, only if you’ve got somewhere you can keep two large wol… sorry, Alsatians:
But a dog warden was not able to come out, as it was a Sunday.*sigh*
A Norwich City Council spokeswoman said: “We were contacted on our out-of-hours number describing two Alsatian-type dogs that had been restrained on leads.
“The caller was advised that we do not operate a 24/7 lost dog collection service and anyone reporting and restraining a dog out-of-hours will need to keep the dog until our normal service is available to arrange collection.”And if you can’t keep the dog? What are you supposed to do, release it and let it roam in traffic?
