Wolves in Cambridge
by M & J
(Cambridge, Ontario, Canada)
I live in Cambridge, Ontario, we have 86 acres on Roseville Road. We have seen a pair of Wolves on our property.
Yes, they ARE wolves, bigger than Coyotes, different in colour and moving with their tails out or up, NOT down between the legs like Coyotes.
Wolves for sure!
Our golden retriever was killed, his collar ripped off, his nose/muzzle broken where one Wolf held him down and suffocated him while the other disemboweled him. The dog was found about 100 meters from the house.
Wolves typically hold their prey down by the muzzle and suffocate it, this was Wolves, NOT Coyotes, the footprints were that of Wolves.
I have now invested in a pair of Slovensky Cuvac males to take care of the other pets on my farm.
I don't want to kill the Wolves but I won't have them killing my pets either!
Slovensky Cuvac dogs are considered "green" because they will first attempt to herd the threat away and only as a last resort will they attack and kill.
I think Wolves are beautiful creatures, I would never harm one, but this incident with the golden retriever has me pretty riled up, to say the least, and I want them to stay the hell away from my house!
The Wolves can have the rest of the property and I will not interfere, come onto the invisible fencing that my Cuvacs stand behind and they are on their own!
Thank you for writing to tell us about the Wolves in your area - I am so sorry about your Golden Retriever, and I'm glad you have got new Slovenský čuvač to protect your animals.
I will also post this on our facebook page.
