Wolves in Ipperwash

by Gram
(Ipperwash, Ontario, Canada)


Ipperwash beach near Grand Bend, Ontario, is where two sightings of possibly a Wolf were observed in 2012.


Last week in February 2013, after a snowfall, large tracks were seen.

We couldn't believe our eyes when the tracks were measured and were nearly 6 inches long; and the distance from one print to the next was 18 inches!!

The book of animal tracks had identical photos of these tracks for the Timber Wolf or Grey Wolf.

The tracks were seen between two houses right near the main road; not in the bush.

Wolf sighting north of Grand Bend highway 21
by: Anonymous

We live south of St Josephs and on Saturday March 29 2013 my wife said she saw a Wolf crossing our property at the bluff but wasn't sure. Today, Sunday April 6, I was out at the bluff looking at the ice on the lake when I thought I had seen one out on the ice. So I went and got binoculars, by the time I had gotten back it was a fair distance away but I'm almost sure it is, silver great with a bushy tail.
Everyone in the area should have caution and watch your pets.
If anyone can confirm a sighting please post.

Wolf track?
by: Amy

In 2010 I was walking along a road near Loon Lake, Ontario which is pretty close to Haliburton.

It was early in the morning in Winter and most of the cottages were deserted. There had been snowfall over night, so there were lots of very clear animal tracks.

I was heading toward where the road veers away from the cottages into the woods more when I saw these tracks. First impression was shock at the size, and I took a few photos, looked around and headed back because I was alone and they spooked me.

There were two sets of tracks running parallel very straight either side of the road, and I photographed the bigger. Any boot-prints are mine coz I am fairly sure no one else had been there since the snow. I have a size 40 woman's foot, but the hiking boots fit two full pairs of thick socks insides them, so they are pretty big.

Are these just the tracks of a big dog or coyote?

Here is a link to one of the photos, as I couldn't post them on here...

Hello Amy, I couldn't get your picture to show up in Facebook, but if you send it to us using the form on Our Grey Wolf Page , I'll post it as I think our readers will find this very interesting. You'll be able to add up to four pictures on there.

What is here now is just a comment on someone else's post, but your experience deserves a page of it's own!

Possible Wolf sighting.
by: Anonymous

I couldn't be 100% sure, but on my way to work this morning driving on the Lakeshore Road, (near Home Hardware), heading north of Grand Bend I almost hit a large animal. At first I thought it was possibly a Coyote, but then after I thought about it for a few minutes I changed my mind. It was stocky. Then I thought maybe a German Shepherd, but it was quite a bit bigger than a Shepherd, and the colouring was different. I asked a friend and she told me she had seen one in Lucan, Ontario, a few years ago. It shook me up a little to see such a large fast animal run across in front of me.

Wolves

Interesting........
I live on Bass Lake, and out on the trail that surrounds the lake, I have been close enough to a Wolf to clearly view his colouring. They run when they hear or see you.
I carry Bear Bangers with me all the time when out on this trail. So far, they have not bothered me because they have not related me to food. There is enough food for them in the woods, and they appear very healthy......... Beautiful Animals.
