Pair of Wolves Near Middlemiss
(Strathroy, Ontario, Canada )
My partner and I were driving north on Melbourne Rd in a huge thunderstorm around 11:00 pm this Sunday night. We were around Middlemiss when large animals walked/jogged onto the road out of nowhere surprising us (first thought "deer).
They came into clear view and one stopped in dead centre of the road. My partner and I both screamed as we had to swerve to avoid hitting it with the car.
Strikingly tall, the wolf just stood there staring at us as we missed it by not more than a meter.
I've never seen wolves in the wild and never so close but there was no mistaking it, these were no dogs or coyotes, they were almost eye level with us sitting in my Honda Fit.
I'm glad no one was hurt, I'm still recovering from the shock but real glad to have had the privilege to witness rare wildlife.
