Wolves almost got me tonight in London
(London, Ontario, Canada)
I went out for a run at around 10:30 pm on November 13th. At the end of my run, I decided to take a shortcut and found myself in the middle of a field near Walnut Street.
As I was standing there gazing up in the sky while listening to music with my sound isolating earphones, I saw some movement in my peripheral vision.
I quickly turn around and saw what looked like two wolves about 3 feet away from me.
It seemed like one of them was just about to pounce on me before I quickly removed one of my earphone and started running as fast as I could toward the road.
As I was running, I looked back and I saw at least two of them were chasing after me.
Well, good thing I can run pretty fast and reached the illuminated road before them.
I turned back and saw they were reluctant to come near the road where I was standing, so I yelled at them and they went away.
It was very dark and I couldn't see much, but I know one of them was white and black and close to 1 meter in height.
What a night!
Wow, that's pretty scary! I bet those were coy-wolves (Coyote Wolf hybrids) - we have had reports from around the area about these animals.
They seem to be bolder than Coyotes and can have markings like Wolves.
Thank you for writing to tell us about your encounter.
