A Savannah man was arrested Friday after police say he climbed into a wildlife center's wolf enclosure bearing sugar, soy milk and a nearly empty bottle of Kahlua.

According to a Morris News Service report, Savannah police were called to Oatland Island Wildlife Center at about noon, after visitors to the center reported that a man was in the wolf pen. Police say John Frazier Floyd, 26, fled the pen when they arrived, and they commandeered a utility vehicle to chase after him as he ran through several other enclosures and down a trail.
