(Petawawa, Ontario, Canada)
I was returning from a road bicycle ride near Petawawa, and a wolf casually crossed the road right in front of me.
At first I thought it was a Coyote, but it was too large.
He paused on the side of the road as I circled back and we watched each other for a good ten seconds or so, before he carried on his way into the trees.
He had a "wolfish" smile on his face and the encounter made my day.
How lucky you are to have seen one of these animals up close - thank you Aaron for sending us this info!
