Coyote or Wolf sighting

by Lindsay
(London, Ontario, Canada)

I was about to pull out of the driveway at work to grab a snack at the nearest convenience store, Oxford St E London, Ontario.

I caught sight of a large shadow moving from one side of the road to the other. When the animal walked underneath the streetlight did I feel chills take hold of me. It was a Coyote.

It was too big to be a purebred, it was far larger. It had the coloring of a coyote but had a similar build to a Wolf, which leads me to suspect this is the Coywolf hybrid that is more commonly sighted in the Toronto area.

Before I knew it, the canine was gone.

A few years ago I saw a Wolf up close near Sleeping Giant outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario.

The animal was massive and most likely hunting the deer that seemed to be on both sides of the road. There had to be around forty deer or more along the sides of the road. So we had to crawl to the campground.

I was with my dad and sister and we were just amazed at the size of the canine and how well he kept pace with the car as we pulled away.

We passed by the Wolf and he stood and watched us. His head made it past the windows on the side of the car. I kid not.

It was just an amazing experience and one I will never forget.

This dog wasn't as big as the Timber Wolf but large enough, close to a lab/pointer mix. Which is around sixty pounds. (I had a dog ten years ago that was the same size of this dog I saw so this is a rough estimate based on past knowledge.)

This was sometime last night around 3:20 am.

Wow, thank you for sending us this report of your sightings! I will also post this on our facebook page.
