Wolves in Monaghan Forest
by A Reader
(Ottawa, Ontario, Canada)
Friends were walking their dogs around 1 p.m. on walking trails in the Monaghan Forest between Old Richmond Road and Moodie Drive, when what they believe was a Wolf attacked their dog.
Once it saw them and the other dogs it ran back into the woods, leaving the dog with a big puncture wound.
We live just in front of the forest and we see and hear many Coyotes, but this was apparently much bigger with a thick chest.
The other night there was a pack of "dogs" in the field and the biggest one (I thought it was a Wolf my husband didn't think there were Wolves around here) followed us on our 4 wheeler almost as if it was stalking us.
It gave up after a while and our dog didn't even notice them.
We have noticed a lack of deer around here this summer.
I will not be walking those trails by myself anymore and if you are walking in the woods in the Fallowfield, Moodie area just be careful.
