Angola Prison (LA) Fights Budget Restraints with Wolf-Hybrids
I had some Cajun friends, and they'd mentioned "Angola" before, so this caught my eye along with the Hybrid comments. The "Angola" location caught my eye due to its reputation. It's an interesting article. The "Client" stats at the end are interesting to say the least.

ANGOLA, La.—Wolf, a 120-pound canine cross between a wolf and a malamute, paced his pen, staring out with amber eyes. In a few hours, his work shift would begin.
He's part of a squad of wolf dog hybrids working nights at the Louisiana State Penitentiary, a local answer to the kinds of budgetary strains felt at many of the nation's prisons.

This is an interesting application of canines, in a highly controlled environment.
I would not want to test their abilities in the no-man's land.
