Wolf or Coyote?

by Kathleen Pope
(Brampton, Ontario, Canada)

I am not sure if what we saw was a Coyote or a Wolf.

We live in the center of Brampton but have an extensive green space very close, through which the Etobicoke Creek flows.

We have sighted many Foxes, smaller Coyote-type animals, Rabbits and Rodents.

I fear that what we saw on the night of November 12th at 11:30 pm was a Wolf. It was on it's own. It was much bigger than the Coyotes I'd seen in the past. It was also, funnily enough, a full moon that night.

He was tentative and inquisitive to our movements as we tracked him (from inside our car).

We followed him into a semi-enclosed area adjacent to the local church and school grounds.

It looked very much like the howling Wolf above, although it did not grace us with it's song that night.

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