Joanna Krupa Cries Real Wolf in the Hollywood Hills!


Joanna Krupa wants so badly to save an animal she thinks is part wolf ... she's willing to sit face-to-face with it ... in the wild. 

Krupa tells TMZ she first saw the creature in the Hollywood Hills more than a week ago. She thinks it's part wolf, part dog and noticed it was bleeding -- so she started feeding it daily.

Her plan is to gain the animal's trust and then capture it and take it to a vet for treatment, but that won't be easy. She says dog rescue people have seen her video and think it could be up to 70% wolf ... which would also make it more dangerous to approach.

If it turns out to be domesticated, Joanna says she might adopt it or help it find a safe home through Lockwood Animal Rescue Center in Ventura.

Do NOT try this in your own backyard.
