Wolves on Ottawa Aviation Parkway
My wife I and drive down the Ottawa Aviation Parkway every morning from Orleans.
Last Tuesday, November 27th, at about 8 a.m. we were headed East towards downtown. Just about half a kilometer from the airport on the side of the river we spotted a Wolf standing and looking in our direction near the beginning of the woods.
I was driving and also saw it very clearly. As my wife turned her head to talk to me she saw another wolf across the parkway just under the cliffs from where CFB Rockliffe used to be.
It seems his other Wolf buddy, the first one we saw, was waiting for him to cross over to the river side of the parkway. They were definitely not Coyotes. Way too big, mean lookin' and with a plush brownish and greyish fur.
There was a cyclist not far away and plenty of traffic. We reported it to the police but they said they would not go there unless someone was in danger. I wouldn't want to have been walking a dog around there at that time.
I've seen Deer
in that area of the Aviaton Parkway, Foxes
, and sometimes Wild Turkeys
, but never Wolves that close to the suburbs. And I know the difference between a Coyote
and a Wolf, I've seen plenty of them out in Alberta.
Hope they're not wandering around the old Rockliffe military base which is now closed.
