Wolves in Ottawa
(Kanata, Ontario, Canada)
I live in Kanata, Ontario, at the boundary of a wilderness area.
It is pretty common to see Coyotes, but early this morning at 4:00 am I heard a Wolf howl.
The sound is quite different than a Coyote's yipping sounds, very deep and throaty.
I was not aware that we had Wolves in this area, although I have heard of reports in the Kingston area.
Thanks for this report of your hearing the voice of the Wolf - some people report hearing a Wolf howling, but often, they don't realize that what they are hearing is a Coyote, however, you are used to hearing Coyotes, and can tell the difference.
I wonder if any other readers from the Ottawa area have seen or heard Wolves lately? If you have, please write and let us know!
I will also post this on our facebook page.
