A volunteer at the WHAR Wolf Rescue in Paso Robles was bitten on Sunday.

San Luis Obispo County animal services says a wolf bit a man who was working at the non-profit rescue.

Animal services says the victim suffered puncture wounds and scratches to his hands from a 6-year-old neutered male wolf.

Animal services has placed the wolf is under quarantine at the center, and will remain under observation until Nov. 27th while it's checked for rabies.

This comes after a wolf attacked the CEO of the rescue center in June 2018.

KSBY reported her injuries were so severe her leg was amputated.

WHAR cares for wolves and wolf dog hybrids and some are brought to schools, wineries and other local events for educational purposes.
