A Savannah man has been charged with trespassing after climbing into cages at Oatland Island Wildlife Center and then leading police on a foot chase through the woods.
John Floyd, 26, of an East Park Avenue address was arrested by Islands Precinct officers who chased him down in a utility vehicle borrowed from Oatland Island Wildlife Center on Sandtown Road after finding him in the enclosure reserved for wolves.
Police were called to the center before noon when witnesses saw him in the pen. Once police arrived, he climbed the fence into other enclosures before running down a trail.
In his backpack, police found a container of sugar cubes, unidentified brown crystallized powder, unidentified liquid, an almost empty fifth of Kahlua, and a almost empty half gallon of soy milk.
