Can a gargoyle embrace animals?

One of my players is playing a gargoyle. He says that his character can embrace animals, but I can’t confirm his claim. I’ve looked for these rules in Vampire: Dark Ages, 20th Aniversary Edition and Vampire: The Masquerade, 20th Aniversary Edition, but I’ve not found anything.

According to this wiki, it’s impossible to embrace animals, but it doesn’t refer the books, so I don’t know if it’s accurate or if there’s a gargoyles exception somewhere.
