Wolf spotted in Wainfleet?

by Carrie
(Wainfleet, Ontario)

I just came back from my walk with my dogs that I do daily, down the friendship trail between Burnaby Road and Golf Course road and I saw a very large dog(?) walking at the edge of a bush and then stopping and watching me and my dogs for about 5 minutes, before it turned around and walked into the bush.


All I can say is that it was a very large dog. It looked greyish but I was 500ft away.

How large can a Coyote get, because I know we have many of them around?

Hello - I've spent many years doing photography in forests and isolated areas so I know the silhouette and eye set of a wolf, tonight October 24 2016, I had spent about 4 hours shooting the night sky when rustling caught my ear. When I looked over my should, my flashlight caught the distinct wide face, long shout, and wide eye placement of a Wolf. I'm absolutely sure of this because within the same time 2 deer passed close to me. Needless to say I got spooked, but have full intentions of going back to try capture in picture. Fun night.

Large wild dogs in Wainfleet
by: Anonymous

We are in Wainfleet, Case Road and Feeder Road West. This morning we had three very large white dogs at Bush Line, they were well over 100 lbs. I have never seen them before in our area - they did look wild, can't be sure though.

Wolf?
by: Sandi

I was on the Gord Harry trail 4pm yesterday. I saw four Coyotes walk out on the trail 300 ft away. As I stopped to decide what to do (had pet dog with me) a fifth one had walked down the farmer's field toward me and popped out only 40 ft from me. It was very large and black. As big as a large German Shepherd with long legs. I yelled at him, but he just stood there looking at me. He finally wandered down to the rest. Very scary!

Wainfleet Wolf sighting?
by: Jenny

August 2014 - I live in Wainfleet and work in Port Colborne. When I was coming home from work at 7:30 am I had a large dog-like creature run out in front of my car on Highway #3 near Golf Course Road. It was too big to be a Fox and it even looked bigger and more built than a Coyote. It may have been a Wolf.

Wolf

I live in Wainfleet, Ontario, and have seen this Wolf(?) on two occasions. Once walking our dog on the same trail from Burnaby Road to Station Road. It was on the path in front of us, just standing and watched us. It is very big and has long legs and it looked a lot bigger than my 86 lbs Lab, also very dark grey, almost blackish. A week before this sighting in my own yard I turned to see something that was moving at the side of our house and from behind the wood pile was same looking Wolf-Coyote(?). I turned to grab my dog and hold him and when I turned back it was gone. Its head was at the same height as wood pile, 3 ft at leas, much bigger than a normal Coyote.
