Possible Wolf sighted in Erin, Ontario
I know that there are an abundance of Coyotes in this area, but has anyone seen any Wolves?
I live backing onto conservation area and have seen paw prints that are huge, then the other day I saw what I thought my my 100 lb dog following a scent through the bush heading for the conservation area.
When I whistled for her, the animal never even acknowledged the whistle and kept at the same pace, and to my surprise I turned around and my dog was at my side - so what did I see?
When I went to find out what it was, my dog immediately caught the scent of something and her hackles went up, so I immediately retreated and headed for home.
We also had an encounter with what I thought was a Coyote on our lawn that our dog chased off the property and she also was all worked up that night too.
I'm just wondering if anyone has seen any Wolves in the area and if so were they darker then the Coyote?
This was a Coyote we saw on Christmas Day 2010 in the same spot that this "Wolf-like" animal darted off to.
Thank you so much for writing to tell us about your encounters with these animals
I will also post this on our facebook page.
