Island Wolves

And Here was the main attraction! I was stopped for a while in this clear cut, when I saw some mysterious shape milling about in the distance, coming my way. I thought it might have been a deer, but there are also cougars about, so I made some noises to see what it would do. It bounced up the hill, and then I saw its silouette as he crested the hill!

This is the first Coastal Wolf I have ever seen! I saw them living up north, but never on the Island! We don't have coyotes here though. It must have wandered in from Port Renfrew. I'm quite surprised to see one here.

I didn't see him for another 5 or 10 minutes, and Then he re-appeared a bit farther over, still checking me out, and milling around. Where are the rest of them?

I admit it looks a lot like a husky, but I'm doubtful that it was a family dog, by the way it acted. He seemed incredibly agile, and had an ere of cautiousness combined with curiosity. It was a pretty cool sight!

I better get out of here before they drag me off in the dark!
