Saw a Wolf near Kingston!

(Kingston, Ontario, Canada)
We live on the eastern extremity of Kingston, and drove into Kingston, this morning, going west on Route 2 a little way past the Howe Island Ferry Road, when I spotted a lone Grey Wolf walking through a field towards the road.
He/she was close to the road and I was on the passenger side, so I got a good look at the animal.
It was apparent that he/she was going to cross the road, so we pulled over to watch and we both had a good view.
He/she was big and healthy-looking, and probably weighed about 100 pounds - too big to be a Coyote.
We often hear Coyote's at night in the summer time, making their loud yip-yipping and howling noises.
I didn't think we had wolves around here ...
There are a few cattle and sheep farms in the area where this animal was spotted.
Thanks for sending us your report of your Wolf sighting - how exciting to see it so close!
Let's hope that the abundance of wild game, will keep the domestic animals safe from Wolves.
