SETX man hopes social media will help find wolf that’s been missing since storm

A shy but lovable black wolf named LeRoux went missing in Orange County during Harvey and his owner, Jerry Mills, desperately wants to find him. 

“I’m so afraid someone is going to shoot him,” Mills said. “But he doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. He was bottle-fed and hand-raised.” 

LeRoux, who 97 percent wolf, went missing on Aug. 28  after he jumped a fence to escape thein floodwaters in Orange. Mills has no idea where he may be. 


“I wouldn’t surprise me if they find him in Oklahoma,” Mills said, hoping to utilize social media to track him down. 

The former breeder and wolf advocate has been raising the animals for 30 years. Mills currently has five dogs and feeds them soy-free, grain-free meat based kibble. 

Leroux is 35 inches wide at the shoulders and six and a half feet long from nose to tail. He has black fur, big yellow eyes and “teeth as long as your middle finger,” Mills said. 

He is intimidating but Mills is hoping that someone who loves animals will contact him, rather than “hanging him on their wall.” 

If you see LeRoux, contact Mills at (409) 330-0871.
