Wolves in Ontario

A reader from Bradford, Ontario, wrote to say ..... We live on 10th Side Road. We hear coyotes all the time. Last night December 3 2013 around 12:30 we heard howling. It sounded like more than one and there was no yipping. I have never heard this before.


A reader from Balinifad, Ontario, recently wrote to say ..... Driving home from work, going north on Trafalgar Road (right before Scotsdale Farm) I saw a large grey Wolf (?) run across the road. It was much larger and longer than a dog, not as lanky as a Coyote, grey in colour, long bushy tail. My immediate thought was Wolf!

Karine from Kingston, Ontario, wrote to say ..... Going for my nightly walk, as I work nights and have my lunch time at 3:00 am, I spotted a Wolf walking across John Counter Boulevard at Sir John A MacDonald Boulevard.

Lily from Brantford, Ontario, wrote to tell us ..... I just got onto the ramp to enter highway 401 from Woodstock when, before I could merge onto the highway, I see a Wolf come up from the side ditch and prance along the shoulder. It was 7:00 pm. Definitely not a dog, Fox nor Coyote. Long tail, pointy ears and the way it moved - pranced... convinced it was a Wolf!

A reader from Kitchener, Ontario, wrote to us recently and said ..... Hello, Grey Wolves are quite common in this area as I have quite frequently heard howling and even got the unnerving experience of seeing one for myself! Near the Sunbeam Lodge, stay clear at night is my advice, the large male I encountered seemed hungry and vicious!

Thank you all for writing to tell us about your encounters with Wolves - although they are usually not seen so far south, there are Wolf-Coyote hybrids in the area - called Coy-Wolves, which may be what some of these sightings are, although there have been confirmed Wolf sightings in the Ottawa area.

If any other readers have seen Wolf-like animals in Southern Ontario, please write and let us know - we'd love to hear from you!
