Wolf or Coyote?
by Kathleen Pope

I am not sure if what we saw was a Coyote or a Wolf.
We live in the center of Brampton but have an extensive green space very close, through which the Etobicoke Creek flows.
We have sighted many Foxes
, smaller Coyote-type animals, Rabbits and Rodents.
I fear that what we saw on the night of November 12th at 11:30pm was a Wolf. It was on it's own. It was much bigger than the Coyotes I'd seen in the past. It was also, funnily enough, a full moon that night.
He was tentative and inquisitive to our movements as we tracked him (from inside our car).
We followed him into a semi-enclosed area adjacent to the local church and school grounds.
It looked very much like the howling Wolf above, although it did not grace us with it's song that night.....
