Wolves spotted in Caledon and Beeton

by Two Readers
(Caledon and Beeton)

Two readers sent us reports of their Wolf sightings, the first is from Caledon, Ontario ...

There's a Crab Apple tree out front of my country home in Caledon, Ontario, where deer usually eat.

Tonight, there was a Grey Wolf that stood about 3 feet high, 5-6 feet long and the head the size of a beach ball, lurking around the area.

I believe him to be tracking deer. In any event, one truly massive and beautiful animal.

Now where's my shotgun!?

Richard, from Beeton, Ontario, sent us this report ...

Tonight at around 9:45 pm, we saw a Wolf on the 5th side road south of highway 89.

It was a beautiful animal.

Thanks for sending this to us. I will also post this on our facebook page.

Wolf howl clearly heard
by: Carroll

We were out in our large yard with our dog late at night, as we do every night prior to bed - (the yard backs onto forest and open fields). We often hear coyotes calling each other or yipping in what sounds like excitement but this was a totally different sound. It was so very loud and clear, a strong and long howl. My grown up children in the house heard it even though the doors and windows were closed. My husband howled back and it howled back and then my dog howled and it stopped.
I cannot express how loud and clear this sound was, it made both of us tingle it was so strange.
We both firmly believe it can only be a wolf howl as it was not a coyote.

Several years ago, our daughter told us about what she heard late at night, not far from London, Ontario. She was used to hearing Coyotes yipping in the evening and during the night, but now and again she would hear something howling - a long, deep howl, which she knew wasn't a Coyote. There may be a Wolf around where you live, as there may be one east of London, Ontario.

I believe I saw a wolf at the edge of the forest behind my house. It was absolutely massive. I live in the Hwy 50 & Hwy 9 area.

Wolf Howling in Beeton
by: Anonymous

My girlfriend and I got home late from work, and as I was making some food, I heard a howl so loud I was able to clearly hear it with the windows closed. It's howled seven or eight times now, each ten minutes apart.

Saw 3 wolves crossing Innis Lake Road, in front of the OPP station. At first I thought it was Coyotes but all 3 were different colours. White brown and dark brown or black.

Hiking eastbound on the Bruce Trail between McLaren Road and Willoughby Road in late morning, I saw a group of small grey canines walking ahead of me. They took off into the bush when they noticed me. They were quite small, like mid-sized dogs. I didn't see any that looked like an adult. There were at least four but could have been as many as six.

A pair of coyotes came up to my back deck showing no fear of me despite my yelling at them from the deck. This happened in broad daylight (8 am). This happened at 20th Sideroad and 1st line.

Wolf or Dog?
by: Anonymous

A huge animal leaped across Highway 9 just before Airport Road (East of Orangeville) this morning about 7:50 am (June 10 2016). We were doing 80-85 and it darted in front of us with little effort. I would say it was as large as a Great Dane/small pony, husky with greyish/brown hair. It had some sort of markings on his hind leg. It flew across smoothly.

March 12, 2016 Wolf Sighting
by: Anonymous

I live near Hwy 89 & Hwy 50; this morning around 8 am I saw two Wolves walk in the field behind my house. First I was wondering what was in the field and I got closer to the window and saw the animal. If it is not a wolf it is a big dog. It headed North, two minutes later I saw another one following in the same track of the first one. I heard some howling around 6:30 am while I was waking up; thinking that the Coyotes were around but now I think it might have been the Wolves nearby. A little scary to see them so close...

Backyard Wolf, Palgrave
by: Anonymous

My family and I live on a country estate off of highway 9. About a week ago, what appeared to be a wolf, walked right across our backyard from one side of the forest to the other in mid-day. We were all shocked at how nervy and unseemingly scared the wolf was to be so close to our house! A week later we saw it again in the back yard a meters from the house, chasing a rabbit. We think it's living by a wood pile on the line of our forest. We think it is most likely a wolf due to its massive size, or possibly a hybrid between coyote and wolf.

Wolves in Palgrave?
by: Anonymous

Early Saturday morning we had six Wolves on our property, they tried to take on our 160 lb dog. They were much bigger than her, unbelievably fast and fearless. I do not think they were coywolves based on their size and actions. Scary stuff. We live in Palgrave.

Wolf on Mount Wolfe
by: Sonja McMeeki

I spotted a wolf last week on Mount Wolfe, just north of Columbia Way. At first I thought it was a loose dog, husky-like. When I got closer it disappeared into the green on the side of the road. His coat was very matted which made me think it might be a coyote. I googled images of coyotes and wolves and realized that it must have been a wolf. It was grey and black, very bushy, dirty coat.

Wolves vs Wild dogs
by: Country Gal

Hi
I was raised in Caledon on a small hobby farm and there were Wolves as well as wild dogs. Most of the Wolves came from an Exotic farm that was in and around the Caledon area over 40 years ago.

Two wolves had got out and decided to head for the hills - the Caledon Hills near the forks of the Credit River, clay hills and the Inglewood area and that's how the Wolves in Caledon became.

Some of the farm dogs have mated with the Wolves, strange as it is, but it does happen as I had two pups from a farm up there that were of Hybrid breed cross that are now popular wolf crossed with domestic dogs.

I had met up with one in the back of our property as a kid but the wild dogs are the worst as they have a grudge against humans for being dumped up in the Caledon-Orangeville area.

My sister and I were chased by a pack of wild dogs when she lived in the country part of Orangeville, Ontario.

I am now down in the country of Southwestern Ontario near lake Erie and haven't heard Wolves as of yet, but they will make their way I believe that.
