My friend and I, plus my small 5 lb Maltese dog, were walking along the bluffs at the bottom of Morningside Avenue in Scarborough, Ontario, this evening around 8:30 p.m.
Along the path I spotted, what I thought was, a small deer who went into the bush, but just behind him was another one that jumped off the path and went into the bush - because there were 2 of them, and they were larger than a Coyote
about the size of a large shepherd I knew they were Coywolves.
I've lived along the bluffs all my life and grew up climbing them and never saw Wolves or Coyotes before - this was a bit unnerving as I had my small Maltese who they would have taken for a rabbit.
We cut through a bordering backyard to get onto the residential street and away from them.
