Howls of the Wolf Pack in west Brampton

by Katherine Keats
(Brampton, Ontario, Canada)

Hi - I'm Katherine. I live close to Steeles and Chinguacousey in Brampton, and nearly every night this winter between 2:30 and 4:00 am. I would be wakened in my bed from the howling of Wolves.

I've mentioned this to a few friends who told me that the call of Wolves can travel long distances and that was most likely the case, but these seemed to be so close.

Last night (June 10/2011) I was out for a walk and on my way home (about 11:00 pm.) I heard the chase and capture of Wolves and a rabbit just west of Chinguacousey on Charolais, it was down in a thick bushy ravine, and it actually frightened me to know how near they were, but also it has made me so curious to know more ... I knew they were closer than what I was told, I only wish I had seen them!

That would have been awesome!

I will also post this on our facebook page.

I know the difference between Wolf and a Coyote ...... your "research" needs a bit more work! :O

Not Wolves

Despite what people might think and how great a Wolf story is, Brampton is not ideal Wolf habitat. What you are hearing and what we all hear in southern Ontario are Coyotes.

I live in rural Caledon and I hear them howling all the time. I have done my research, no wolves in southern Ontario.

Do your research and you will learn that this animal will never co-exist with humans in populated areas, not even rural farm land can sustain healthy Wolf packs.

Their main source of food is Moose and Caribou.

Not sure I have ever seen those animals in southern Ontario - maybe the Toronto Zoo!
