Neighbor claims they aren't appropriate as pets and should be set free.
Kristen Stewart's mom must have been on Team Jacob all along. Jules Stewart is tussling with a neighbor over her dogs. But these aren't just any old dogs, they're wolf-dog hybrids. That fact, apparently, makes at least one neighbor a little nervous.
"The honest truth about the animals is, years ago I rescued a few wolf-hybrids, and they live on a large open piece of property filled with trees," Stewart told Us Weekly. "These animals are perfectly legal in the state of California."
Stewart, 58, recently filed a restraining order against her neighbor, Sue Bemi, claiming she has been harassing her, accusing her of illegally keeping wolves. She has four wolfdogs named Jack, Lily, Tommy and Lola.
Stewart was apparently confronted in her driveway by Bemi.
"I'm a very private person and try to remain that way, but, when someone threatens me, or my animals, on my own property -- I will retaliate, which is what I did by obtaining a restraining order from the superior court," she said.
Stewart told Us Weekly that she doesn't look at her dogs as pets, rather as companions. While wolf-dog hybrids are a legal with a permit in California, the same can’t be said for all states. Stewart also isn't a proponent, in the sense that she doesn't think they are for everyone.
While she may be most famous for being the mother of Kristen Stewart, Jules has had a 30-year career as a scriptwriter. She’s hit a recent milestone, making her directorial debut earlier this year with her film K-11.
